New California Bill Allows People to Smash Car Window....

Tuesday, August 9, 2016


Not too long ago I discovered that a new bill was just recently introduced in California that allows people to smash a car window if a dog or cat has been left in there with the windows closed if it is a particularly warm and sunny day and if the pet has been in there for too long.

My thoughts on this is that I think this would be a good law. Too often, pet owners leave their pets in their cars. Especially if it is a hot day, it can be extremely dangerous. Even if the window of the car is slightly open, it still is very dangerous for a dog or cat. Cars can get extremely hot within 10-15 minutes.

Being in a car in hot conditions is not just dangerous for pets but also humans. However, humans can cool down with our ability to sweat. Dogs and cats, on the other hand, do not have this ability. I think this law would help keep many animals alive and safe.

What are your thoughts on this? Tell me in the comments :)
