Would You Pick up a Stray?

Where do you draw the line between being a good Samaritan and being appropriately cautious? I already shared my experience with finding a loose, lost dog and, thinking back, it was definitely a dangerous decision for us to decide to help the scared, but tagged, pooch find his way home. In addition to the risk of biting you out of fear, a "wild" doggie or kitty could pass along a disease as well. I'm curious what your take is – would you pick up a pet roaming leashless on the side of the road? If you've experienced this firsthand (either finding one or getting one back), please share your story in the comments below.
