As reported on Haligonia.ca:

"At approximately 5:50 pm (on August 9), a male was dri­ving westbound (inbo­und) on Prince Albert Rd in Dartmouth. The male was driving by Sullivan’s Pond, as the geese were cr­ossing over from the area of Elliott St. The male did not see the geese and stru­ck three of them. One goose died at the scene. Another goo­se was taken to a vet and died. The third goose continued and swam to the island and is being monito­red by volunteers. Witnesses confirm th­at speed was not a factor in this incide­nt.

No charges have been laid."

If you have grown up in the Dartmouth neighbourhood, you've at least once been greeted by the gaggle of Sullivan's Pond geese. In the very least, you've waited in traffic on Prince Albert while you watched in amazement as the geese crossed at the cross walk. 

Many of us from the neighbourhood are feeling gutted that there are no charges being brought forward. Many of us are wondering how this isn't an example of either distracted driving or intentional animal cruelty? Perhaps maybe MVA 100(2)?

I feel that the Halifax Police Department have made a rash choice in not laying charges and that political influence and community protest is needed to see justice done. 

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Mayor, Halifax
    Mike Savage
  • Halifax Police Department

    This petition starter stood up and took action. Will you do the same?
