Have you ever seen a dog locked inside a hot car and felt like breaking a window?
An Illinois state legislator is proposing legal immunity for people who rescue pets from hot vehicles. Rep. David Olsen has filed a bill that would alter the Humane Care for Animals Act, allowing civil and criminal liability exemptions for people who break into cars to save dogs or cats — as long as they attempt to tell police about it first. The Illinois News Network has a summary, and the bill itself can be found here.
I only have one question, why limit it to dogs or cats? Don't other pets deserve rescuing too?
