To close the week, to those who follow me, I like to leave you a post with something more than a story; I want you to think a little and try to change the consciousness of society, even if that change is minimal. On this occasion I’m going to talk about the accidents that can occur on our roads by the abandonment of pets and company.
Went this past Wednesday to the 20 hours of the afternoon of work to my house after a long day of work. I have drive between a point and another about fifty kilometers and the road passes close to several villages. As you will understand is a national of the many that populate our country. It is not especially dangerous although it has a couple of black spots according to the DGT.
Some safety systems can prevent accidents, hunting
When they had covered some twenty miles I took my position behind a truck and a car. Suddenly I see as both reduced their speed dramatically which I had to react. However what I did not see it as the truck run over without mercy to a mastiff jet black that he was wandering by the road. The animal fell badly wounded on the road, but after passing the truck, the car that was going after him and I over (and all who would come after us) passed away without remedy.
This situation gave me a strong impact as it is not expected that such animal is loose on the road. In addition, we could have been in an accident because of it. In my case, the accident ended with several plastic broken at the bottom of my car and a massive scare. However, every time this situation occurs I stir the guts and the bad milk (pardon the expression) washes over me.
we do Not know if this animal was abandoned or had escaped from their usual place of residence, and this makes the situation more hard. If its owner had abandoned it, from my point of view (and care that each one can think as you want) you should go straight to jail. The reason is basic and is answered with several questions as to why that animal has had to lose his life because his owner has not been aware or have forgotten about him? why is that the owner has endangered our lives by not taking care of your dog?
If the animal has escaped and the owner is not aware of the situation, the thing changes, but the owner does not cease to be responsible subsidiary of the acts that may cause their animals. However, the area by which traffic daily is very given to leave their pets. This makes the animals in the majority of cases are undocumented, and if you cause an accident, can not know who is the owner and therefore responsible for the problems you cause.
we will Never know if this poor mastiff was abandoned or if they escaped. Nor will we know if his owner has not had anything to do in the accident in which your pet was lost and looking for it thinking that what you can find with life. What is that if it was abandoned it should be a crime and no one is missing, because part of putting the animal’s life in danger it puts the drivers.
in Addition, there is a problem. If the animal is properly identified and by your fault you’ve been in an accident you’ll be able to report her and to cover the costs of this bad action. But what if, as occurs in the majority of cases has no chip or it is so wrinkled that neither will find it? who bears the cost? For that, for now, the arrangement of the plastic of the underbody of my car have been run for my account and the owner of that poor animal will probably be taking a few beers in the sun of this wonderful weekend.
it Is assumed that the new technologies, as the systems of braking, autonomous, recognize animals will help to prevent these accidents, but in the meantime I ask for awareness, and seriousness. An animal is more than a toy or something with which to entertain and pass the time. A dog, a cat, or a pet is a big responsibility and I’m sure if they could they would give the life for us more than once, so I think that there is that protect them and care for them as what they are, beings that love us, and respect.
