On the outskirts of London near Hertfordshire, a pair of helpless dogs were launched from a car traveling 60 mph, into traffic on a busy highway Sunday evening. One dog was killed instantly after several vehicles, although they tried to swerve to avoid him, collided with the dog described as a hound breed.
According to the Mirror, the second dog, a Jack Russell terrier, somehow survived the horrible disaster and was captured by a motorist who stopped to help. The dog was not microchipped and was turned over to animal welfare. The RSPCA has named the seven-year-old pup Tarmax. Miraculously, he managed to get to the side of the highway without any injuries.
Tarmax is now in a temporary foster home and will soon be made available for adoption.
Witnesses have not been able to provide a clear description of the vehicle nor its license plate numbers.
Anyone with information that may help AWO Warne and the RSPCA investigate the incident can call the RSPCA’s inspectorate appeal line number, in complete confidence, on 0300 123 8018.
