Veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward ain’t messin’ around when he demonstrates just how HOT it can get in parked car in over 30 minutes even with the windows slightly rolled down. Guess what? It gets deadly hot!
This demonstration isn’t just for folks with pets, either. It also applies to the assholes who leave their kids in cars.
This reminds of me of the time I saw two miniature schnauzers left to bake in a BMW parked in an IKEA parking lot. It must have been at least 95 degrees that day. The dogs were pawing at the windows and barking furiously. People were just standing around the car, looking confused, but not doing a damned thing. I alerted the IKEA staff to the situation immediately and they paged the owner of the car, but no one showed up to rescue the pups. The police were then called.
