While compassion causes many people to put out food dishes for animals roaming loose, logic makes others think twice about inviting (possibly diseased) strays to the area. Even if you wouldn't pick up one of these pets on the side of the road, what's your take on feeding them – does this good deed outweigh the risky results?
Where do you draw the line between being a good Samaritan and being appropriately cautious? I already shared my experience with finding a loose, lost dog and, thinking back, it was definitely a dangerous decision for us to decide to help the scared, but tagged, pooch find his way home. In addition to the risk of biting you out of fear, a "wild" doggie or kitty could pass along a disease as well. I'm curious what your take is – would you pick up a pet roaming leashless on the side of the road? If you've experienced this firsthand (either finding one or getting one back), please share your story in the comments below.
