It's better to be poor and humble than to accept tainted foreign aid from the US government, say El Salvadorian farmers. When it comes to the future of El Salvadorian agriculture it's better to build from within than to accept corporate handouts.

Or go with plan B. Shatter the window take the animal out and notify authorities after the fact. Average 911 response time is 15 minutes. Calling the non-emergency line raises the time significantly. In that time the animal could die. First do call 911.

I am all about biodiversity, but I must admit ticks are not high on my list of biota to celebrate. They are beastly little bloodsucking parasites who double their ick factor when their bellies are bloated full with your blood!
