Signs ask drivers to slow down in Mission after pets accidentally killed

Some residents in the area of Second Avenue and Birch Street have posted signs after their pets have been run over.

  • Sep. 26, 2016 8:00 a.m.

Two animals were struck by vehicles and killed in as many days in the vicinity of Second Avenue and Birch Street in Mission last week and area residents have had enough.

Several makeshift signs have been created and placed in the area pleading with drivers to slow down.

In an email sent to the Mission Record, one resident explained that “a beloved neighbourhood pet was killed . . . The family of the dead animal had to tell their children this news before they left for school.”

They went on to write that there are about “50 dogs, as many cats, and of course, many, many  children living in the area.”

They are asking drivers to watch their speed in the residential area and to watch out for anything on the roads.
