Where: Parking lot of the Huron County Nature Center, Port Austin, MI
When: Thursday, June 5, 2014
This sad tire was found lying in the parking lot of the Huron County Nature Center; apparently it has lost its vehicle (and rim). How did it get here? Did it jump off the vehicle (and rim) because it caught the scent of a deer and then bounded off into the woods, its owners unable to find it even though they searched and searched? Did it wander away from its vehicle (and rim), just curious as to what was beyond its own driveway? Or is it the unthinkable - did the owner drop off this old tire at the Nature Center, not caring what happened to the poor thing, and then drive off on a new set of tires?
Whatever the case – curiosity, neglect, or just plain pollution - this old tire needs to be cared for. It needs to be turned into a swing for children, or a rustic planter for a yard, or it needs to be taken to a proper recycling facility. After all, it is the law in Michigan.
If you happen to know where this sad old tire belongs, please contact the Nature Center so that we may reunite this tire with its rightful owners. Thank you
