ANIMAL TRAFFIC DEATHS
Now the clocks have gone back drivers are being urged by the NPA and the Verderers to take extra care when driving across the New Forest this winter in a bid to halt the startling rise in pony and cattle road deaths. There have been 48 animal traffic deaths so far this year, up to 30 September, an increase of 20 per cent compared to the same period in 2012. During winter’s shorter daylight hours animals will be even more vulnerable. If you witness or are involved in an accident involving a pony, donkey, cow, pig or sheep, call the Police (999 for an emergency or 101 if it’s not an emergency). Animal emergency hotline cards also give you the numbers to call if you see sick, injured or distressed animals. Cards are available from garages, the Trusty and Local Information Points (our Village Shop is one of these). To stock the cards contact the New Forest NPA at firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information see http://www.newforestnpa.gov.
