Hot Pet in Car Law

This past summer, there was an incident where someone left their dog in a hot parked car, over 90 degrees, in the sun, windows up.

I learned that the City does not have a law on the books, however, we defer to the state AG/Markets law.  The person who leaves an animal in such conditions will receive a fine of between $50-100.

I did not think that this was sufficient.   I asked the Legal Committee to draft a law that would raise the fine to $250.  The second offense is $500.
