“I think it’s heartbreaking that up to a billion of the animals in Australia have a painful death, to be dead, in which they have no hand in them, and it’s not their fault,” writes Hamilton. The driver is said to be in mourning for the animals that have passed on, and pointed out that the species is closer to extinction-causes.
