A student at Calgary’s Ecole secondaire catholique de Schweers created an Instagram post in honor of a beloved animal that is rising to prominence: the mule deer. After a powerful post about several moose men who were murdered in New York, Celina Kennedy turned her focus to the mule deer that are also being killed by humans across North America, according to the Edmonton Journal. She quoted Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko as she described the moose as a champion and treated the account as one in which she tries to follow her heart and to “write a little poem for every one of my favorite animals.”
Her post, which has now had over 37,000 likes and was shared on social media by the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, resonated with other Instagram users. One user, @sarisemond, wrote in an Instagram post she thought Kennedy “was the only smart human in the world.”
Kennedy told the Journal in an email: “That meme came from a 2016 tweet from the aptly named mule-human mashup account @MuleforPresident, that inspired my post. This mule has a lot of respect for other animals, including humans, and I was immediately drawn to the idea of sending him off into the wild to set him free.”
