Police officer Tweets dog rescued from hot car

According to the London Evening Standard, last Friday was the hottest day of the year in north London’s Finsbury Park, with temperatures reaching a high of 90 degrees. So when police officers found a dog curled on the floor of the driver’s seat of a locked car, they wasted no time in saving the animal and broke one of the vehicle’s windows.

Sgt. Richard Berns tweeted the rescue:

Reports claim the owner returned to the vehicle, discovered the damage, and will get a home visit by the RSPCA.

Leaving a pet — or a human, for that matter — in a car on a hot day can result in heat stroke, or a host of other ailments that can be fatal.
