Dog In HOT Car – Who’s Right / Wrong

We’ve all seen it…you pull up to a store on a HOT day and there’s a dog sitting in a car.  How long has it been in there?  Where’s the owner?  Do you smash the window, or call the cops?  Go into the store and find the owner?

That’s exactly what happened when a Massachusetts woman pulled up to the “Big Y” parking lot and saw a dog in a car.  Although the windows were down, it was hot, and she didn’t want anything bad to happen.  After 42 minutes of waiting, she opened the door and helped the dog.  That’s when all hell broke loose.

Of course, someone pulled out their phone and started recording.

Who’s right?

For whatever it’s worth, Massachusetts law says that members of the public should call 911 first and can then take action to remove the animal if it is in severe distress and the owner cannot be immediately located.

As far as TEXAS law – unfortunately there are no laws in Texas preventing people from locking any animal in a hot car.  However, there have been cases where people found to have done this have been charged with cruelty to non-livestock animals.  If you break into a car here in Texas to save an animal…that’s a large problem.

What would YOU do?
