We Lack Llamas

This here's the story of a New Jersey man who loves animals. Yes, he seems very gentle and treats animals all stripes very well. What's not to love? So he tried helping a snake cross the road, which sounds like the beginning of a joke.

Q: Why did the snake cross the road?
A: Jusssssssssssssst becausssssssssssssssssse!

Right, it's kind of limp. Lots of people love animals. Jazz and Georg love animals and have taken in many special needs strays. Their dog Kenya tried to herd me once. Apparently, I'd strayed from the flock.

Anyway, it's early and the coffee hasn't kicked in, so I had to re-read this a few times:
Not too long ago, he tried to revive a bumblebee, keeping it in the palm of his hand with some water until it buzzed away two hours later, said John Bross, a friend and neighbor.

Strangely, it sounds as if he succeeded. He revived a bee. The snake however was less appreciative and bit him.

While he's in Intensive Care, I sincerely hope someone's feeding his cat.
