(FORT FRANCES, ON) – A family in Fort Frances, Ontario is torn to pieces after a tragic incident left their chihuahua deceased on the road.
The owner of the dog stated that the driver of a dark grey truck ran over the dog and just kept on driving without slowing down or stopping. The truck was towing a brown Lund boat and had wisconsin license plates.
At the time of the incident the dog was on a leash and they were walking across Greens when the devastating situation unfolded. Attempts were made to get the drivers attention and flag him to stop, but failed. The vehicle ran over his head and the owner says that once the dogs collar stopped jiggling, they knew the dog was dead.
The family is asking whoever is responsible for this incident to please come forward and make it right. They are mourning the loss of their pet. An apology and help cremating is requested of the person who ran over the dog.
The owner is a waitress and on a tight budget.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact us so we may pass on the information to the woman in mourning.
