One day after a video surfaced of a man lashing out at a woman for confronting him about leaving his dog in a hot auto, another man approached a woman in West Vancouver today after noticing a dog in the vehicle.
The stranger informed Beals that he would be informing the authorities regardless.
The actress, 51, was confronted by a concerned citizen after she left a German Shepherd in her SUV while running errands in the Dunbar area of Vancouver on Wednesday, reports TMZ.
Global News in Vancouver filmed the Golden Globe-nominated “Flashdance” star returning to her Ford Escape with her large dog inside and the window cracked a few inches.
“In Dunbar … it’s fine”, Beals said.
Marcie Moriarty of the British Columbia SPCA has said that leaving windows down just a few inches on this hot of a day is not enough and that it was “definitely not” rolled down enough.
The incident was reported to the SPCA and their Chief Prevention Officer’s response was even more curious:
“The sun shines in Dunbar just as much as it shines everywhere else.”
Dog panting in hot auto. She doesn’t understand why people keep on leaving their animals in hot cars.
“In this temperature, I don’t think that would necessarily create the type of cooling effect that would ever be sufficient”, she said.
