i will leave my wife and children behind if a snake fell out of the attic or something crazy.
but i went out of my way to get a turtle out of the middle of a busy two-lane street one time. It was moving, slowly. I pulled over, stopped traffic, and grabbed it with both hands and put it in the grass. Look like it was trying to cross the street or it had a death wish.
but i fuck with animals heavy, lol. I'll try to scare a racoon or possum out of my trashcan rather than kill it.
