CFN – The irony of Kemptville Ontario Wal-Mart employee Carla Cheney being fired after calling police when a customer left their dog in their vehicle is that CFN was already working on a story about the dangers of leaving pets and children in cars at warmer temperatures.
Many people have ideas about what they can and can’t do in these situations and I earlier interviewed Cornwall Ontario Chief of Police Dan Parkinson about this very issue.
Here is that video interview as he holds Fitzy my Dachshund who I never leave in cars or take shopping if I can’t bring him in.
Vet Ernie Ward shot a video showing how hot it gets in 30 minutes.
A great video showing how bad it is to leave a dog in the car!
Even sadder is people don’t realize that by leaving a bowl of water it actually creates more humidity in the vehicle this making it feel even warmer.
There’s just no excuse to leave your child or pet in a vehicle. It’s just not right. Remember, dogs don’t perspire. They pant. It’s essentially torture. Why would anyone do that to their pet?
If you see a situation where someone’s left an animal in their vehicle please call 911. Please look around for the owner while you’re waiting. Don’t let a child or animal suffer needlessly.
