Tit For Tat: After Woman Left Dog In A Hot Car, Police Do The Same Thing To Her

Police in Ohio decided to punish a pet owner for leaving her dog in a hot car by doing the exact same thing to her. The police officer made the woman sweat for several minutes in her black Nissan Sentra so that she would realize exactly what she had done.

It happened outside a Walmart store in Ohio earlier this month. According to Cleveland.com, it was on April 12 that the woman was approached about the incident.

However, she insisted that her dog was fine in the hot car, despite the fact that it was a warm day. According to the police officer, however, leaving the dog in a hot car was not fine at all.

He decided to teach her a lesson by leaving her inside the black vehicle with the windows rolled up for several minutes, watching her sweat and grow uncomfortable along the way.

Saying that the woman looked “uncomfortable” during the time she was locked in the car, the officer then warned her that she would be arrested if she was ever caught doing the same thing again.

What people don’t always realize is that while the outside temperature can be as low as 71 degrees F, the inside of the vehicle can very quickly heat up to 116 degrees F within a period of an hour.

Anyone finding a dog showing signs of heatstroke in a similar incident should move the animal to a shady area immediately and call a vet.

Of course, it is not only dogs that are at risk from being locked inside a hot vehicle. Just last week in London, U.K. a police officer had to smash a car window to rescue an 8-month-old baby locked inside on the hottest day so far this year.

According to the officer, a baton was used to gain entry to the vehicle and that the baby was luckily safe and well.

However, on the subject of children, the Inquisitr reports the story of one strange neighbor in Arizona who threatened to call the police because the child next door kept giggling and laughing and he couldn’t take it anymore. Apparently the noise was disruptive to his dogs and his bird.
