On a weekly basis, I see dead animals that have been run over by cars on our roads. Not only dogs or cats, but also monitor lizards, monkeys and birds. It is more common on busier roads such as highways.
It is always heartbreaking to see a roadkill because the body is often mangled and the blood splattered all over the road.
I believe that no one is killing these animals on purpose. However, it always shows that everyone needs to be more mindful behind the wheel, and slow down whenever necessary.
I would also like to call on those who have accidentally hit an animal to pull over and place the body on the road verge, so it doesn’t continue to get run over.
While it calls for the need to have better road safety awareness and animal control in the country, my question is: is there an agency tasked to remove these dead animals from the roads?
