Many, many years ago before all these e-caller's and decoys came about we would fill black balloons with helium and tie them to a bush. Use a crow call for a few minutes and then get on a rabbit in distress hand call.   Worked more times than not.

She said, “After all the pig did for us, it didn't seem right to eat him all at once.”
Seems about right.

We had a hummingbird that would come to the kitchen window when the feeder was empty and would also eat from it while I carried it out.

Alan Shepard becomes the first American in space

On May 5, 1961, Navy Commander Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. is launched into space aboard the Freedom 7 space capsule, becoming the first American astronaut to travel into space. The suborbital flight, which lasted 15 minutes and reached a height of 116 miles into the atmosphere, was a major triumph for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

NASA was established in 1958 to keep U.S. space efforts abreast of recent Soviet achievements, such as the launching of the world’s first artificial satellite—Sputnik 1—in 1957. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the two superpowers raced to become the first country to put a man in space and return him to Earth. On April 12, 1961, the Soviet space program won the race when cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was launched into space, put in orbit around the planet, and safely returned to Earth. One month later, Shepard’s suborbital flight restored faith in the U.S. space program.

NASA continued to trail the Soviets closely until the late 1960s and the successes of the Apollo lunar program. In July 1969, the Americans took a giant leap forward with Apollo 11, a three-stage spacecraft that took U.S. astronauts to the surface of the moon and returned them to Earth. On February 5, 1971, Alan Shepard, the first American in space, became the fifth astronaut to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 14 lunar landing mission.

You get too attached to Speedy and it will be difficult to eat him – just like this pig.

A man is driving down a deserted country road when he has a blowout. Not having a spare, he finally finds a house and asks the lady if he can use her phone to call for a tow-truck. As she opens the door for him to come in, a three-legged pig runs out.

He asks, "Why does that pig only have three legs?"

She says that they had a fire, and the pig woke everybody up and then went back and brought the dog out.

He said, "But why does the pig only have three legs?"

She said well another time my son was playing on the ice and it broke, and he fell in and the pig ran to the barn and got a rope and saved him.

Again, he asked, "Why does the pig only have three legs?"

She said, “After all the pig did for us, it didn't seem right to eat him all at once.”

 Back when he was a young lad Speedy fell out of his nest and the kids raised him up to young squirrel hood.   Right now he's a young squirrel but I suspect at some point he will probably make his way back to the wild when he gets older.  My brothers wife feeds the chipmunks and squirrels out of her hand at their house they particularly love peanuts.
