The officer on duty in the Traffic Section at Al Digdaga Police Station, First Lieutenant Mohammed Salim Bourgiba, said the motorist, M.H.A, could not control his vehicle after running into the herd, killing one of the donkeys. The vehicle was badly damaged in the accident

Major Ahmad Al Shamil, head of the Traffic Section at Al Digdaga Police Station, said stray animals were one of the causes of accidents in the emirate. Last week, a national motorist was injured after his vehicle ran into a group of camels that had strayed on the highway.

Owners of stray animals would be penalised, said Major Al Shamil, stressing that stray animals had caused at least 50 accidents in Ras Al Khaimah so far this year.
