A Saginaw County man was hit and killed earlier yesterday (Tuesday) after attempting to remove his daughter's dead cat from in front of his house on M-46 in Merrill.

According to ABC12, 50-year-old Andrew Rosas went out to remove his daughter's cat, which had been hit and killed in the roadway earlier. Rosas wanted to take care of it before his daughter saw it.

It's so heartbreaking to think, all this man was trying to do was shelter his daughter from a broken heart after her cat was killed. Now, the poor girl doesn't have a father or her cat.

Apparently, a woman was driving on M-46 and didn't' see the man in the road when she hit him.

We hear stories that break our hearts every day but for some reason, this one really bothered me.
