Dog locked inside red Pontiac with the windows up at Walmart
A dog or dogs are locked inside a red Pontiac with the windows up near the food entrance of Walmart. An animal control officer is responding to the complaint.
UPDATE 1:30 p.m.: The owner was paged and the officer advised the person about the danger of leaving a dog in a car with the windows up.
What is wrong with this person??? The dog could easily chew up the upholstery, or perhaps urinate or defecate in the car.
Good question Scott.
If we had a comment of the week award, Scott ....
I think there should be a huge billboard on veterans memorial drive telling the dangers of this problem.
Any responsible pet owner would know not to leave a pet in a car with the windows up.
Please leave your pet at home if you are going some place you can't take your pet.
Billie, this is an ongoing problem. If you can get the owners' names and publish them, maybe it would be a deterrent for future abuses...
I have a better idea: Lock the pet owners in the car with the windows up, and no ignition key so they can't start the car and turn the A/C on.
After all, their pets weren't left the ignition key so THEY could start the car and turn the A/C on!
I see what you did there Bob #pistolpermits
I wouldn't publish the names or the license plate information of the dog owners in these cases because they are not arrested and charged with a crime. I do hope that some "sunshine" helps deter this practice.
