Animals killed on New Forest roads

Daily Echo: Animals killed on Forest roads Animals killed on Forest roads

TWO animals have died after hit-and-run accidents in the New Forest.

A cow was killed outright on the B3055 at Hawkhill, near Brockenhurst, and a pony had to be humanely destroyed after a collision on the B3080 at Turf Hill, near Hale.

The pony, which suffered a broken leg, is thought to have injured at least a day before it was found.

The Verderers, the organisation in charge of Forest stock, offer a £1,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of a hit-and-run driver.

Sue Westwood, clerk to the Verderers, urged drivers involved in animal accidents to alert the authorities immediately – even if they wanted to remain anonymous. She said: “Even an anonymous report is better than nothing and prevents an animal being left to suffer.”

Drivers can ring the Forestry Commission on its 24-hour hotline 023 8028 3141.

Selfish, arrogant bullies. No sympathy for idiots driving too fast and wreckless through the NF.

Dont come through here if your in a hurry or have no respect for animals, residents and local farmers.

.. meanwhile, elsewhere in the UK, over 600 million sentient animals each year have their lives prematurely ended quite deliberately at the hands of our species.

the animals live in the new forest, people know this and yet they still speed, luckily for the poor cow it was killed outright but the poor pony didnt. There is no excuse and I have no time patience etc for hit and run drivers of animals or humans

.. do you really think sentient animals don't suffer, both before and during their slaughter? And this is done, deliberately, on an industrial scale. I don't think NF drivers deliberately set out to kill these animals.

Getting back on the subject of the story,No they don't deliberately set out to kill them but why don't they stop and ring the appropriate people to deal with it.

Oh sod off.

People eat meat. They have done since the beginning of time and the only way to do it is by killing animals. You can say it's a shame all you like but it provides sustainable jobs for thousands of butchers, farmers, chefs etc that will never cease to be.

Plus it tastes frickin awesome. We need meat. End of.
