Target: Terrence Hackett, Police Chief Superintendent of Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership
Goal: Demand repercussions for driver who reportedly tied a mare to a truck and cruelly dragged it down the road.
A mare was reportedly almost hit by a car after being tied to the back of a pickup and dragged down busy roads. Witnesses say the driver was speeding, making it difficult for the mare to follow along. Video footage makes it clear that the animal is in distress as she struggles to keep up with the truck and at one point, tries getting free from the tethers. On top of putting an innocent animal’s life in danger, this incident also caused traffic to start backing up.
The driver’s behavior was careless, neglectful, and inconsiderate of other drivers. This is no way to transport an animal as it could’ve easily resulted in injuries or death of the poor mare. An RSPCA spokesperson has asked for witnesses or people who recognize the driver to get in touch with them. Please add your signature to this petition demanding that the driver be reprimanded for using unethical measures of transportation and endangering the mare’s life.
Dear Chief Hackett,
A mare was reportedly dragged through busy traffic after being tied to the back of a truck. Witnesses say the mare was nearly hit by a car and that the driver was speeding, causing her to struggle to keep up. Video footage shows the mare, clearly distressed, trying to break free from the tethers.
This is an unethical and dangerous way to transport an animal, especially during busy traffic hours. This careless behavior puts the animal and other drivers at risk. We urge you to see to it that the driver faces repercussions for this.
[Your Name Here]
