I was recently sitting in my wife’s vehicle in the grocery store parking lot! I did not feel like going inside and she only needed a few things, so I decided to stand in the vehicle with air conditioning and music.
I looked over at the vehicle next to me and observed that there were two dogs, one was sitting in the front seat and one was sitting in the back seat of the car, the windows were closed and my heart right away dropped because it was a legitimately hot and humid day.
I looked a little bit harder and saw that the keys to the vehicle were in the ignition, which means that the owner of the dogs most likely left the air conditioning on for them. I thought to myself that if the owner did not come back in a few hours, I would call my wife and see if she thinks I should take action or let it go, before I could do that, I saw more than one people walking towards the car, one seemed to be the owner and one seemed to be a random lady. The two started yelling at each other. The stranger started saying to the owner that they are inhumane for leaving dogs in a hot car. The owner yelled back that the air conditioning was on in the vehicle the whole time. This fight about air conditioning went on and on for a few minutes, and then the owner tapped on my vehicle window and asked if I could defend the fact that her keys were in the ignition the whole time. I told the stranger that I saw the keys in the ignition which means the air conditioning was most likely on.
