If you know anything about FedEx workers, you realize that they are busy individuals. They have a strict timetable to keep and they don’t often have time to look around and smell the roses.
As you can imagine, however, those FedEx workers see more than what most of us could ever realize. They are up close and personal with individuals from around the community, and at times they see something that needs some attention.
It seems as if Sabrina Bryant discovered something while she was doing her FedEx route and she couldn’t let it go. It was a pitbull puppy that was scarred to the point where she knew that the dog had been abused.
Although this puppy may not have had a lot of love in her life at first, it seems as if she now has a lot of it because Sabrina has replaced those scars with kisses, as you can see the Facebook photos below:
It happened in Burlington, North Carolina when Sabrina was delivering packages for FedEx. The pitbull puppy was running loose in the area and she knew the pup needed some help.
According to Newsweek, Bryant said: “I found her on the street and every house I stopped at told me to take her home.” The neighbors said that the area was not good because there was a dog fighting ring nearby.
After bringing the pup home, Bryant named her Chevelle. She doesn’t know what Chevelle had to go through in the early months of her life, but she did know that she was missing fur on her neck, had a chipped tooth, and was repeatedly hit. Even after eight months, the fur is not growing back on her neck.
Chevelle gets nervous if somebody is nearby holding something in their hands and if they try to pet her. She is skittish around people but she does love dogs and cats. She is slowly starting to warm up to life around humans now that she has some love in her life.
I am broadly interested in how human activities influence the ability of wildlife to persist in the modified environments that we create.
Specifically, my research investigates how the configuration and composition of landscapes influence the movement and population dynamics of forest birds. Both natural and human-derived fragmenting of habitat can influence where birds settle, how they access the resources they need to survive and reproduce, and these factors in turn affect population demographics. Most recently, I have been studying the ability of individuals to move through and utilize forested areas which have been modified through timber harvest as they seek out resources for the breeding and postfledging phases. As well I am working in collaboration with Parks Canada scientists to examine in the influence of high density moose populations on forest bird communities in Gros Morne National Park. Many of my projects are conducted in collaboration or consultation with representatives of industry and government agencies, seeking to improve the management and sustainability of natural resource extraction.
