GENESEO — The Geneseo Police Department released another report on their activity of arrests from July 9 to July 15 and additionally would like to remind people about the dangers and consequences of leaving an animal in a hot vehicle.
Animals left in Hot Vehicles
Due to the warmer weather, the Geneseo Police Department is already taking complaints in the Village of people leaving their pets in a vehicle. This is a reminder not to leave your pets in a motor vehicle on warm days. It is best to leave your pet at home, then in a motor vehicle. Every year, dogs suffer and die when their guardians make the mistake of leaving them in a parked car—even for “just a minute”—while they run an errand. Parked cars are deathtraps for dogs: On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100 and 120 degrees in just minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes.
