Road Accidents Involving Animals
Animals in the Wild
Drivers of vehicles in road accidents which involve animals have a responsibility to ensure that any injured animal is quickly given appropriate veterinary treatment or is humanely killed.
SPCA supports the implementation of strategies which effectively reduce the risk of road accidents involving wild animals, including the use of suitable warning signs, wildlife tunnels and bridges, speed restrictions and fencing.
SPCA opposes the deliberate killing of animals by vehicles.
