:( We hit and killed a dog :(

Posted by   + Show Post
So my DH hit a small dog that ran out in the road. I'm positive it's dead. I feel awful. It's got me thinking about how do people handle this? Do you keep going and forget it? Do you stop and trying to get the animal off the road? Will you trying to find the owner to alert them to the accident?

 Stop. I look at it like I would a child. See if it is hurt. Try to find the owner. If it's alive and no one is around take it to the vet. That's what I would do anyway.

 I would definately try to find the owner.  See how badly hurt it is and all.  It was an accident - everyone makes them.

:(   Yeah I would stop and see if it's dead.  If it's dead i'd move it off the road.  If it was near any houses i'd go up to a few in that area and see if the dog belongs to them.  That would help ease my mind.  If it's alive all I can think of is take it to the vet and go from there!

I would stop and try to find the owner so they would know what happened.

 Oh girl I am so sorry. If it's in fact dead, you have to remove it to the side of the road, alert the owners if you can find them if the dog has a tags. If not, maybe call the local police station alert them of the situation. I can't imagine what you are going through.

 I'm sorry.  I would be devestated if I accidentally killed someone's pet.  It happens though..  : (

That's so sad. I'd be distraught. I'm sure it's hard to stop and look at it but I would if I could.
