The company, after getting to know about this incident, extended their sympathies to the family. They have said that they’ll take action as soon as the investigation is over.

It was a horrible accident that could’ve been prevented if only the driver took a little care. The FedEx package killed the dog and this incident is a shock to everyone. We extend our condolences to the grieving family.
