Recently my dog Bassy was hit by a car right behind our house, and I witnessed the whole thing.Unfortunately I was not able to get to him in time to prevent the situation from occurring sadly.However with that being said I helplessly watched as the lady driving the car refused to slow down or come to a halt as she sped pass me and plowed right through my poor dog. This woman without hesitation left him lying there struggling to survive and sadly passing shortly after. I personally feel that people should be held accountable for hitting animals especially a household animal. Which is why I am trying to petition for some kind of law to be passed. Why should an animals life be valued as less than that of a human being. We invest not only our time and money with providing them good life’s to live while they’re here on earth with us ; but we also invest our love in them like we would our own human child.After all they are apart of our families with that being said I strongly feel as though something should be done for these animals. So not only will they receive justice but their families will as well, and hopefully they will be able to find some peace with that knowing that their loved one wasn’t just tossed to the side like their life meant nothing or never existed. I want some kind of law to be passed whether it be reducing the speed limit behind my house,or any house located near a main hwy or school zone. Or whether it be holding people accountable for hitting animals and requiring that all houses located near a main road be properly fenced to prevent any such tragic occurrences from happening I just want for something to be done so other families will not have to experience this or the ones that have will be given some peace.
