ARE ANIMALS IGNORED BY DRIVERS IN CITY?
It is illegal to kill or injure an animal intentionally. According to Toronto Defence Lawyers: “Canada has a punishment of up to five years in jail upon conviction of an indictable offence; and $10’000 fine or 18 months in jail, or both for injury to cats and dogs.” Car passed and left innocent squirrel body, dead on road bed. No law can protect victims entirely from inevitable mistakes. City Pulse interviewed with some people to survey the solutions such as discouraging these animals to cross the streets where they are out of driver’s view and endangered.
