What to do if you find a breeder with his animals?

Road Safety has given a series of recommendations to deal with unexpected encounters with animals on the roads. The first thing they recommend is to wait for the animals to move forward and move to one side of the shoulder to let the vehicles pass. They also advise against honking as this can scare and disperse the animals. Lastly, and most importantly, they recommend driving at low speed and with your lights on. ‘It is important to remember that there is a law in our province that allows animals to have the right of passage and that protects them in herding tracks,’ the agency explained.
