Man Driving ATV In Park Kills Dog Out For A Walk

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a man driving an all-terrain vehicle in a park where he shouldn’t have been hit and killed a dog out for an evening walk. The impact threw the man from the ATV, and he broke his collarbone.

Authorities say the man and a companion were riding ATVs on a bike path in Tibbetts Brook Park in Yonkers on Saturday around 6:30 p.m., even though there are signs banning the machines.

The Journal News reported that a woman was walking her two dogs along the path, when the ATV hit one of the animals.

    What a moron! Someone commented “What if it had been a child he hit!” News flash: To the owner of that poor animal it WAS a baby! As an avid dog owner I can tell you that my Jessie Baby Girl might as well be called a “human” Since I got her she is my constant companion and best friend! To have a jerk like that guy hit and killl my Jessie I would have to exact a pound of flesh, a liter of blood or maybe run him over with an ATV and see how he likes it! But, I guess he must be above the laws and guidelines the rest of us have to follow. After all, any normal person would see a sign that says “No ATVs” and they wouldn’t drive in the park. But,, not this guy. I hope he feels so badly about how he murdered this poor dog. WAY TO GO, MORON!!!!!!

    Tragic. This inconsiderate moron should do a little time and think about his responsibilities as a human being.

    Guys like this should be put in jail, what if it had been a small child!
    People need to take responsibility for their actions.
    I feel sorry for the person who cared for that dog and the pain the dog went through.
