Police smash into blazing hot car to free dog locked inside by cruel owner on 104 degree day

We don’t really understand those heartless people who would leave their pets inside hot cars. Can you imagine yourself being locked inside a car with no source of air for long hours and under scroching sun. This irresponsable act led to death of many pets.

PETA are doing their best to prevent such deaths. In fact, they had tracked 57 preventable hot car deaths since 2019,

A very important message to keep in mind for everyone: if you find a dog at risk of heat stroke, it’s important you act before it’s too late… even if it means damaging property, it’s always worth it to save a dog’s life.

That’s exactly what a police officer in Seville, Spain, who staged an urgent rescue for a dog trapped in a hot car.

Police got a call from locals about a tiny Yorkshire Terrier left inside a vehicle by their owner. It was a scorching hot day: reportedly 40°C outside, equal to 104°F, it and it was likely 10-15 degrees hotter in the car.

The dog was undoubtedly suffering in the car. It isn’t clear how long he had been in there for, but the dog was hiding on the floor of the vehicle, something dogs do to try and keep cool in this situation.

With no owner in sight and the clock ticking, police took a drastic step to save the dog:

They shattered the window.

The broken window allowed the officers to reach the dog, finally freeing him from the unbearable heat.

The dog was found in bad shape: he was already overheating so much that locals doused him with water bottles to cool him off. Police brought the dog to veterinary care.

The dog’s owner, a 49-year-old woman, was soon found… and, according to Seville Police, she didn’t see what the big deal was.

She apparently thought this high temperature was nothing to worry about, and said she had left the dog alone in a car before.

But justice was served: she was reported for animal abuse, as well as for not being up-to-date on her dog’s vaccinations.

(And on top of that, she’s gonna need a new window.)
