Video of the Week: NFL Player Suffers In Hot Car To Promote Pet Safety

Video of the Week: NFL Player Suffers In Hot Car To Promote Pet Safety

Kevin: You just have to run in for a moment.  Surely your kids and/or pets will be okay if you leave them locked in your car with the windows rolled down a little bit, won’t they?

After all, it’s only 90 degrees outside and that’s not that hot is it?

How long do you think you could stay in a car in those conditions? 10 minutes? 20 minutes? How about an NFL player in peak condition?

Here are PETA’s tips on what to do when you see a pet locked in a hot car:

  1. Quickly take down the car’s information, like license plate number, make and model and have the owner paged in the nearest buildings.
  2. Call local humane societies or police immediately; don’t hesitate to call 911 if animal is in distress.
  3. Don’t leave scene until situation is resolved.
  4. If you can’t find the owner, the authorities are unresponsive or  too slow, and the dog’s life appears to be in imminent danger, find a witness ( or several ) that will back up your assessment, and take steps to remove the suffering animal from the vehicle.
  5. Wait for authorities to arrive.
