An Ohio woman who locked her dog in a hot car got what animal lovers will no doubt consider swift justice from a quick-thinking police officer.
When Strongsville police received a call on April 12 from a concerned animal lover about the dog being left unattended in the Nissan Sentra, an officer waited at the car for the owner to return.
When the unidentified woman returned to her vehicle, the officer ordered her to sit in the car herself with the windows closed.
The officer reported that the dog was fine, as was the woman who was described as looking “uncomfortable.”
The woman was released with a warning and a tough lesson in what her dog must have felt.
But civil liberties lovers should be more concerned about whether a police officer should be delivering his own idea of street justice.
Dogs don’t deal with heat the same way humans do.
While humans sweat all over their body, dogs release heat by panting and sweating from their paws, which isn’t as fast.
That means even a car that isn’t hot to people can be much too hot for dogs.
According to a study from the The Animal Protection Institute “even at 9 a.m. with an outside temperature of 82 degrees, the closed automobile registered 109 degrees inside.”
And cracking a window isn’t much better, the study found.
“With 4 windows cracked, an 88-degree day outside turned into a 103-degree sauna inside the vehicle at 10 a.m.”
It’s something to keep in mind as the summer approaches.
