Animal Rescuer JJ saving a salamander from being squished on the road. We stopped the car in the middle of the street, got out, and left the doors open as we walked back to scoop up the soft-bodied amphibian. Traffic was going to have to wait for us.
I suggested that we fling it into the field, as far away from the road as possible, but JJ insisted on placing it down gently and letting it walk off his hand into the grass. Another “animal in trouble” saved from the perils of the suburban neighborhood street.
