Your trust in what has to be a psychotic turtle is what led to the baby bird’s demise. It is not entirely fair, since a turtle of such age and experience should be calm and wise and a lot slower with his jaws. Unfortunately, you were unable to stop his sudden violence, and with that, the baby bird is no more. You tried, however. You tried.
Oh my goodness. It’s a harsh and confounding world you live in, bear. My respect for you has increased even more.
