Hu-mom ranting tonight.....
We were on our way to the grocery store this evening. It was near 100 degrees out. There had been talk on the radio/tv news/newspapers, etc., about NOT leaving your dog locked in your car.
As we were entering the parking lot at Wegmans this evening, we saw just ahead of us, a local Animal Control truck and a county police car. They ended up in the same aisle where were parking. As we walked by and before the county officials got out of their vehicles, we heard a dog barking in a closed car! Can you believe it? We watched as we walked toward the entrance to the store and the officers approached a late model small SUV where the barking was coming from. Another family had stopped and was watching with us. Since the authorities were there, we went ahead inside to do our shopping.
When we were leaving the store, the county officers were talking with a man and woman now in the car. There was no sign of the dog. But the man was signing some paperwork the Animal Control officer had handed him. We all left about the same time.
We don't know if the Animal Control officer had custody of the dog. But how could someone leave a dog locked in a car with the windows up and the motor off even for 5 minutes in this heat? Some good Samaritan evidently called it in, thank heavens.
We were in complete shock. This is not a back woods area. It is an upscale area at an upscale shopping center!
Sorry for the rant....
Stay cool and be thankful there are good Samaritans everywhere!
