This was an interesting article. What do you do when the people enforcing the laws are the ones breaking them?
Heat killed K-9 unit dog left in car
Leaving dogs in cars when it is warm outside is just dumb. This police officer was in New Orleans, it was 88 degrees out on May 27th. He left the dog in an SUV. This is the third death in the same K9 unit within a short timeframe (one had heartworms and a heart attack, the other fell down an elevator shaft). The thing that bothers me the most?
Young (police spokesman) noted that while the necropsy report found a likely cause of death was "shock due to heat stress," the medical examination did not definitively find that the temperature inside the vehicle caused the heat-related symptoms. While Young acknowledged that the dog was left unattended in the vehicle, he said the report could not rule out the possibility that another medical problem caused the dog to overheat.
That leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
