Hit and runs should be made illegal for animals of all types! If hit and runs are illegal for humans, what is the difference for animals? Animals deserve respect and care, and hit and runs show none of the latter. Any person that hits an animal and doesn't seek care and attention immediately should serve jail time and receive a fine. We need to start caring and protecting our animals and beloved pets more, start showing your appreciation! This is an important matter that urges to be heard! Pet insurance is not enough to mask the pain that pet owners receive when their pet is hurt. Jail time and a fine would be a perfect punishment for those who run over pets- WITHOUT seeking medical attention. I think that it is significant that pets receive a special awareness- how would you feel if a close friend/relative/family member lost their dear pet through a hit and run; you'd feel devastated! Running away from your crime isn't serving justice to the family, or animal- for that matter. Quite frankly, it is not fair that humans get more attention and care than pets. There is no moral justification- therefore; this problem needs to be solved! It isn't hard to call 999 or ask somebody to call for help. Pets matter, too.
