Over the years, I’ve blogged a lot about the animal abuses and outright cruelty incurred by sea animals at SeaWorld. Most recently, I penned a testimonial piece in memoriam for the passing of the killer whale, Tilikum. This case caused global protests by animal activists worldwide when it became a center piece for CNN’s award-winning documentary, Blackfish, that shined a glaring light on the maltreatment of Orca whales in captivity.

It is the sort of thing that wouldn't be everyone's dream job, but for Harry Kunz it has been a labor of love to be the heart and soul of the Eagles Nest Wildlife Hospital in Queensland, Australia.

So for Halloween they add Trick or Treating and many other safe family events to their usual fare of animals.

It is a shame that when the doorbell rings in these troubled times, we don't rush forward to open our household to others.  Instead we approach our front door with a bit of hesitation.  Bill collector?  Creepy stranger?  Giant lizard?
