On a warm autumn night, at a table on the banks of a river, a company of fishermen and hunters traditionally ends the next day: slurping an ear and poisoning a bike. The theme of the day is raccoon hunting. A couple of hours ago, when the hunters returned to the camp, a thick, fluffy, awkward beast came into the light of the headlights of the “loaf”. "Specialists" immediately ranked him as a raccoon breed - and away we go …
Novice hunter Sashka is a thoughtful and zealous person. If you shoot at a raccoon with a gun, its main value, the skin, will be spoiled. How to solve a problem? The answer is held by the master Uncle Borya. He tells how and where to catch raccoons, how to keep the caught sufferers on a hungry diet, so that the fat goes away and the fur becomes stronger, how to peel off the skin, how to dress it. The annoying Sashka does not calm down: “Uncle Borya, how can you peel a raccoon? He is alive!” Tired by the story, the hunting expert takes the next batch of alcoholic drinks and, grunting, says: “You can shoot, you can strangle, or you can rip off a living person. Your raccoon - do what you want!” The wild laugh of a tipsy company scared away not only all the game in the area, but also all the fish in the river.
But I'm not talking about raccoons. Although the sentenced animals feel sorry. I am about our children. More precisely, about the children in the car. A variety of animal protection organizations are fighting for the rights of the four-legged sufferers, environmental laws are being written, nature reserves exist. And who will fight for the rights of children?
A few years ago, they actively launched a campaign for the mandatory use of special child seats in cars. They passed laws, threatened fines, and conducted propaganda. And quietly lowered everything on the brakes. Either the size of the fines seemed uninteresting to those who collect them, or other, more important cases appeared, or they simply forgot. But they can, when they want. We decided to wean the people from the stupid habit of going to the oncoming lane with or without and weaned it. With distortions, excesses, a mess, but their line bent and bent. They said: zero ppm driving - and even if you crack, do not listen to anyone. Drunkenness fight, and all.
What about the kids? They are still riding on their knees in the back seat - there are some pretty faces in the back window. They are sitting in the arms of mom-grandmother-aunt. Or stand between the knees of the front passenger. Kids want to move, look around. They did not study physics, accident and injury statistics are not taught in kindergartens and schools. The instinct of self-preservation at such a tender age has not yet been developed: either a child will roll off a hill in the yard, or try to put a finger in boiling water, or try beautiful medicines.
