At approximately 20:58 this evening, I was out in the rain walking my dog. Casually walking minding my own business, when... it happened


I stepped on a snail.

Got me wondering, if you step on a small creature like that, it's obviously not going to make a full recovery, so do you go back and finish the job?

I once watched a horror film, it wasn't particularly scary, to me, but my friend was petrified.
I walked out, grabbed a glass of milk, and a cookie, and then went upstairs to get my laptop.

I casually walked out of the kitchen, in the dark into the hallway, barefoot...

I walked along, then trod in something really sticky, and wet...I was like, wtf? So, I hopped to turn the light on. And, on the floor, a slug, half of it was squashed to the ground, then other half was still moving.

Needless to say, I was much more scared than I was throughout the entire horror film...

Then, I went to clean my foot under the tap. Slug residue is very hard to get off...
Wait.

Yeah kill it. I stepped on a worm after the rain the other day, poor guy was flattened out and still squirming, so I mushed it.

Some things I don't mind killing, like mosquitoes or cockroaches, but couldn't kill butterflies, strange that. Also I hate when one of my plants dies, I feel responsible, and I am I guess. It makes me sad.

This reminds me:

Me and my cousin killed a field full of butterflies when we were like, 7, by stepping on all of them.

It was probably near 250 butterflies.

I'm such a monster.

OT: I'd say put it out of it's misery. I mean, it's going to die, you just crushed it, it's not like there's any snail hospitals to nurse it back to health, might as well make its death quick then let it just draw out in pain.

I occasionally kill bug and feel guilty and think I've ruined their life, they were simply do it's own thing.

Then I figured that they outnumber us entirely yet we're the superior race on the planet. Take that, nature.

where do snails get their shells, anyway?

They make them while they grow. They secrete the substance, I believe.

I once smacked a dragonfly on a beach with a shovel.

It was still alive so I picked it's spine out with my fingers.

And then I microwaved an ant.

And I dropped a worm in tequila and watched it squirm in agony.

And then ran over a family of puppies with my truck.

And then brutally murdered my neighbour by putting a plastic bag over his head and stabbing him in the gut with a sharp branch.

And then adopted a bunch of haitian children.

Yeah, that should make it all right now.

I used to do target shooting with the RAF in a Tri-Forces and International Tri-Forces event and hit the target & a rabbit in the sand behind it :/

I'd never been more traumatised seeing the mess.
I'm glad it died instantly :/

You put it out of its misery in my opinion.

I'd make sure my dog pee'd on it then I'd donate it to starving children or someone's mailbox =)

Unfortunately, my dog doesn't pee on demand otherwise this woulda been the case.

Oh man, it is crazy to think about that. If it's injured do you let it continue to suffer in agonizing pain or do you do something crazy like squish him completely which seems rash. I often wonder about that if I hit something bigger on the road. I saw a raccoon flailing around at 3 in the morning 2 weeks ago and the car that hit it was like 500 feet ahead of me. Poor thing had to be in agony for a few more minutes.
#28
One time I was fair high and walking home and a garda car passed and distracted me enough to step on a snail, which frightened me so much that I jumped ten feet in the air just as the car was passing.
#29
If the snail had crushed you, it wouldn't care. So why do you?

I say go back and finish the job. At least you can feel good about putting an end to it's pain.

Damn snails litter the ground like rocks in Okinawa 'cause it rains so much. I kill multitudes every morning when I run. Their deaths by crushing are inevitable, really.
The big ones don't take well to lawn mowers.

I am now sad from thinking about the dog being run over

as for the snail(), you should watch where you're going! But then again, I look down when I walk.

I never kill them entirely for some reason... it never occured to me to kill them quickly.

I'm not fond of snails, but I can't make an animal suffer either. So I guess I'd go back and kill it.

Edit: I know snails aren't animals, yeah, yeah.

Jainism... really though
imagine ALL of the things you are unintentionally killing
all of those bugs in the soil and grass being smooshed and you can't even see them.

If a human gets hit by a car would you squish it and put it out of it's misery? I would...

I used to have pet snails when I was a kid. They were unbelievably disgusting. They were in a big box that smelled of rotting cabbage, partially because of all the rotting cabbage I couldn't be arsed to clean out of it. And once I pulled two of them apart mid-sex, as I only realised that was what they were doing once I'd already started.

I used to take snails out of their shells all the time when I was a kid in San Diego and they were freaking everywhere.
