The cemetery is beautiful. A fabulous blend of new and old. However, on our way out of the cemetery we passed a humane animal trap by a headstone. The type used to trap feral cats. Inside was a dead hedgehog and another barely moving. A squirrel was also in the trap. They were obviously trapped because they were damaging graves/the property. But there was nothing humane about this. Animals left out in the sun to starve with no food or water. They should have been released elsewhere. We released the squirrel but there was nothing we could do for the others. We stopped at the office to complain and the employee there seemed horrified and said the plan was to release them....they were babies and they are trying to catch the mom. It was horrific and spoiled the tranquil beauty of the cemetery. We called back a day later and were assured they were keeping a closer eye on the traps and that they had released surviving babies to return to their mother.
I wouldn't want a loved ones grave destroyed by animals but I would want them humanely treated.
