United Kingdom: Hero police officer smashes car window after owner left their Bichon Frise inside to cook to death

UNITED KINGDOM -- Police have had to smash a passenger window to rescue a dog from inside a car on the hottest day of the year.

Officers found the Bichon Frise pet in the car in a "distressed state" on Sunday afternoon as temperatures spiked at 28 degrees Celsius (83 degrees Fahrenheit) outside.

The dog, which was found in the car in Hornsea, now has to go to a vets for check-ups.


The policing team posted on their Facebook page: "Dog retrieved from hot car in Hornsea in a distressed state. Dog is now to be taken to a local vet for checks. It's 28c+ (83 degrees) outside and even hotter in a car.

"The car now needs a new window."

Police have warned owners not to leave animals or children inside the cars during hot weather, with temperatures usually climbing to much higher than outside.

"Do not leave animals or children in vehicles during hot weather, it's not hollow advice as people and animals have and will die," they said.

"Officers will break your windows should it be reported and deemed necessary to preserve a life of a person or animal inside. You could also be liable for prosecution."
