As the weather gets hotter and hotter, news headlines in the state of Tennessee, in the United States, have warned about the risk of heat stroke and dehydration run by pets that people leave inside their cars. Now, a huge step has been taken to combat this.
The State has legalized that the windows of a car are broken when an animal is inside, suffering anguish due to the heat. Before, when someone decided to break the glass of a car to save an animal that suffered, had to face a legal action in terms of liability for any damage caused. Now, this will not be a problem: the only person who will have legal problems is the one who leaves the animal in the car.
There is much more to be done to protect animals, not only when they are abandoned in cars, but this example is a good start. Good for you, Tennessee!
