Truck accidents can be just as deadly to animals as people. On July 8, 2007, a truck carrying approximately 400 goats overturned in San Rafael, California, when the truck driver attempted to make a sharp turn. Fearing a secondary auto accident, the CHP refused to free the goats from the trailer. Unable to escape, 243 of the goats suffocated to death after this big rig accident. Does this goat company have a claim against the CHP for the unnecessary wrongful deaths of these goats? Did the CHP perhaps save human lives by not allowing the goats to run free?
