Four Australian Cattle Dogs Killed in Hit and Run Accident

Gemily West was injured, and her four Australian Cattle Dogs killed, Monday night when they crossed a street in Carmichael, Calif., and were struck by a car. West, 23, and the dogs were in a crosswalk, as was her boyfriend, Harry Long-Randall, 21, of Grass Valley, as they walked near her home at about 10 p.m.

The Sacramento Bee reported on Wednesday afternoon that Long-Randall lost a leg in the accident and was in critical condition at Mercy San Juan Hospital. West was listed in fair condition with a compound fracture to her lower leg.

The vehicle suspected in the incident is a 1986 or 1987 Nissan Maxima or Stanza, metallic light brown in color, according to SFGate. The CHP reported that the car is missing the left side-view mirror and has broken running lights. The driver allegedly ran through the intersection where the couple was crossing, without stopping, at an estimated 80 mph.

A Facebook support page features a photo of the four dogs, Bindie, Evie, Zury and Winry, with halos placed above their heads.

Donations for the private cremation of Gemily’s dogs can be made in her name at Orangevale Veterinary Hospital, 6248 Main Ave. Ste. D, Orangevale, CA 95662. The hospital’s phone number is 916-987-2055.

Anyone wishing to contribute to the Harison Long-Randall/Gemily West Fund can send a check to Pam Dinsmore, Community Affairs Director, The Sacramento Bee, 2100 Q St., Sacramento, CA 95816.

We urge dog lovers everywhere to help these young people who have suffered a great loss.
