Dogs have a “very sad story” of being killed by cars on a road in NSW, a NSW State Government spokesperson said.
The spokesperson, who declined to be named, said the “animal was travelling from its home in a paddock in the middle of a bush” when it was “lost” on the road in Northamptonshire on Sunday morning.
“It was travelling at speeds of up to 150km/h,” the spokesperson said, adding that “the animal was found by a passer-by”.
“It’s a very sad story.
It’s a matter for the animal welfare committee.
State Government spokeswoman, Melissa Williams, said it was a matter to the animal safety committee and the State Government was working with the Animal Welfare Council to investigate. “
The animal has had a very good life, it’s a fantastic animal, it does a great job.”
