A netizen named Pigwithstripes posted on imgur a series of photos of what happens to an egg left in a frying pan and left in a park car on a hot day (he only did this for 15 min) to raise awareness about not leaving your dogs behind in the car.
On his post, the egg was placed in a frying pan inside his car with the window opened few centimeters, so it can have a ‘fresh air’; after 15 minutes, the egg was cooked. Can you believe that?
According to PETA, every year dogs die when their owners leave them in a parked car. When the air temperature is 86 degrees Fahrenheit (°F), the asphalt can reach to 135 °F and when its 87 °F, the asphalt temperature may reach up to 140 °F – that’s hot enough to cause sunburns, permanent damages after just one minute of contact.
“If you wouldn’t put your dog in a frying pan, please don’t make him or her walk on hot pavement,” added PETA.
Heatstroke symptoms are restlessness, excessive thirst, thick saliva, heavy panting, lack of appetite, dark tongue, rapid heartbeat, fever, bloody diarrhea and lack of coordination. If your dog shows any of these, immediately get him out of the heat and put him into a well-ventilated area and then to a veterinary immediately.
If you happen to see a dog left alone in a hot car, take note of the car’s color, model and license plate number. If there is no way for you to page the owner, you may call the local humane authorities or the police. Don’t leave the scene until the situation has been resolved.
