In this modern age of information, when we all effectively have a computer in our pockets, most of us know that it’s seriously dangerous to leave a dog in a car in this hot weather, but this guy disagrees…
This guy left his dog locked in his car, while having fun in the sun, now he is fighting back against people who rescued his dog?!
The guy was super angry as he came back to his car at the Frensham Ponds, Surrey, to see his window smashed, but temperatures were around 95 degrees Fahrenheit that day.
He left his dog in the car with the window in the car only slightly open, it raised a lot of concern with many passers-by.
People waited an hour by the car for him to return, they also passed water through the crack, in the end, they decided to smash the window out of concern for the French bulldog, a breed known to suffer from an inability to cope with the heat.
The owner though still did not return for another three hours, then he started getting angry at the people who rescued the dog and saved him from a terrible fate.
He was waving at the camera and was far more bothered about his car than the dog apparently, he was dancing and flapping!
The police were called out, they told Rangers to return the bulldog to its owner and had words with him, but was this really enough?
Hollie Marie Evans, who recorded the event said:
“The temperature was increasing and the dog was showing signs of distress, and he started being sick and his breathing became erratic.”
“We needed to get the dog out for his welfare. The group decided for the dog’s safety to break the window and get him out. ‘We broke the window, got the dog out and took him to shade. He was still being sick.”
“We waited for just over four hours in total for the owners to return. They weren’t remotely interested in the dog’s welfare and were more concerned about the broken window of the car.”
“No thanks was given, just abuse and threatening behavior…”
Local officials said:
“With the help of concerned members of the public, the dog was retrieved, given water and kept in the shade of the Rangers’ office.’ “
“The dog was handed back to the owners after advice from police and they were told about the dangers of leaving dogs in hot cars.”
The animal protection society, the RSPCA, said:
“In an emergency, we may not be able to attend quickly enough, and with no powers of entry, we’d need police assistance at such an incident.”
“Don’t be afraid to dial 999, the police will inform us if animal welfare assistance is required.”
Crucially, the RSPCA also said:
“If the situation becomes critical for the dog and the police are too far away or unable to attend, many people’s instinct will be to break into the car to free the dog.”
“If you decide to do this, please be aware that without proper justification, this could be classed as criminal damage and, potentially, you may need to defend your actions in court.”
