Officers Find Pig and Dog Trapped in Hot Car

This past weekend was a scorcher, and as we get into the thick of summer, let’s hope we don’t report more stories like this one: last weekend, police received a call from a concerned passerby, who reported seeing a pig, and a dog trapped in a hot car. When officers arrived at the scene, located at the corner of W Bertona St & Gilman Avenue W, and the witness had opened and unlocked the car to let the animals cool down. car

Although it was evening, it was still 86 degrees, and officers reported finding a small panting dog, and a large pot belly pig with sweatpants on – as if it wasn’t hot enough! According to the Seattle Pi, the car was filed with empty food and water bowls, and was covered in feces. The police gave the animals water, and found the owner at a nearby bar. It’s important to remember that the inside of your car is much hotter than the outside temperature, so please be cautious not to leave small children or animals unattended in your car this summer. For more information on the police report, visit the Seattle Pi.
