Good Samaritans Can Break Windows to Save Dogs in Tennessee
Passersby can now break a window to save a dog from dying inside a car on a hot day in Tennessee, according to Time.
That state added to its “Good Samaritan” law to include protecting pups from sweltering heat by breaking a window. According to the Humane Society, a car can heat up in 30 minutes to nearly 120 degrees inside if the outside temperature is 85 degrees.
According to the new law, people should reasonably search for the owner of the car or notify police before breaking the car’s window. Bark Post reports that 16 states have similar laws on the books.
