E-petition launched to enforce formulated process when pets are killed on the UK's roads
An e-petition has been launched, to enforce a formulated process that Highways Agency departments must abide by when pets are found killed on the UK's roads.
The e-petition called Harvey's Law was launched after a pet dog called Harvey was killed on the M62, but his owners were not aware of his fate until 13 weeks later. Therefore an e-petition has been set up requesting the following be enforced:
Compulsory scanning of all domestic animals retrieved from the highways.
Log report filed and circulated to both Police and Dog Warden.
Photographs of the deceased to be held with the log report to be used for identification purposes.
The e-petition will be considered for debate by the Backbench Business Committee should it pass the 100 000 signature threshold.
