Motorists on Germany’s autobahn got an unexpected look at how young puppies are transported from puppy farms to big cities when 113 of them spilled onto the highway after a crash.
Police say a truck carrying the puppies crashed in western Germany before dawn on March 1. All but one of the dogs survived the accident.
According to reports the truck slid off an exit ramp on Thursday due to rainy conditions, going through a guard rail and then tipping over.
Sadly one puppy died of its injuries and seven others were “lightly” injured. The 40 year-old driver and his passenger were not hurt. The puppies of various breeds were being transported from Slovakia to Germany and Belgium where they were to be sold.
No charges have been filed against the driver. There is no further news about the condition of the puppies or where they were taken.
