Well here we are again summertime and hot weather in the forecast. Every year we hear of  children being left in hot cars and if anyone spotted this would think nothing of busting out a window to save a child. How about a dog? Would you bust a car window to safe a dog on a hot day, and should it be legal?

Well it is now a law in North Carolina.

Currently, 14 US-states prohibit pet owners from leaving animals in hot vehicles, and most allow law enforcement officers to enter the vehicle to rescue a dog in distress. However, North Carolina’s new law, if passed by the governor’s signature, will allow not only police officers, but also firefighters, animal control officers, and other rescue workers to take necessary action in saving an animal’s life.

So what do you think? Should Washington make this legal?
