Earlier this month, there was a rollover accident in Berne, that involved a tractor-trailer carrying cows and sadly, some of them died.

Now, there’s an Albany area person and a group that wants to have a roadside memorial constructed in honor the cattle.

In the story from News 10 ABC, an Albany woman, Amrit Singh along with the group People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA) have submitted a request to build a 10 foot tall memorial tombstone. In the letter that Singh submitted to Darrell Duncan from the Albany County department Of Public Works, she noted that “this tribute will let commuters know that the best way to prevent tragedies such as this one is to go vegan.” She also noted that cows should never be sent on these terrifying trips to slaughterhouses and feedlots.

Singh also hopes that the memorial will serve as a reminder of the responsibility of the tractor-trailer drivers about the animals that they’re transporting, and also to other motorists whose lives become endangered when there’s a tractor-trailer crash.
