Alvin Wolff: Person who hit dog needs to accept responsibility

On Friday, somebody hit and killed my dog at the foot of my driveway in Dakota Ridge. Nobody stopped to see if the dog could be helped, and she was left in the road for four children in my neighborhood to find and notify me of.

Tire tracks were in my driveway, and my dog was two feet from the end of my driveway. It is beyond belief that somebody in this town could be so callous and uncaring.

If you hit a dog with your car, stop. You could save the dog’s life. You could also accept responsibility, courageously, for what you did and at least offer some sympathy for the heartbroken owners.
