The other day, I went to my local supermarket, to buy the upcoming week’s groceries.
While I was there, a voice announced on the intercom that a dog was left unattended in a car, with the windows up. The store employee mentioned the make, model, color and the complete license plate number.
I’m sad to see that I did NOT see anybody rushing towards the exit
I would have been more pleased if the people had also said something to the affect of “If you don’t take care of this in the next 5 minutes, we’re going to break the window”
In the vicinity, there are also a bank and a pharmacy. I regularly see people park in the parking lot, and hit ALL of those, before returning to their car. Sometimes, it can be 1/2 hour or more. Not okay, in my opinion, if it’s a hot day, and there’s a dog in the car, with the windows rolled up.
Perhaps the dog’s owner heard the announcement, yet was too embarrassed to be seen making a run for the door to save the dog . . . ?
