“You think I don’t know? I was gone for five f*&king minutes. Do you understand that? Five minutes!”
As the weather heats up again, a video has been posted online of a local young man who apparently left his dog in his hot car.
“Will he die in five minutes? Huh? Will he? F*&k you!”
Jennifer Thi writes on Facebook that a woman came into her Vancouver store yesterday to say a dog was in a car parked outside, and did she know who owned it.
Thi went outside and saw the French bulldog panting heavily, and trying to get as close as possible to the small crack in the window.
Turns out one of the car doors was unlocked, and that’s when the owner approaches.
“I left to grab a f*&king sandwich. I come out here, sit for five mintues.”
Thi says people should think twice about leaving their dogs in the car on a hot day.
It doesn’t take long for the temperature to rise, even in the shade, to dangerous levels for a pet.
Thi removed the video from her Facebook page Tuesday afternoon.
She writes that she was told the man has a mental disorder and “isn’t in the best situation already,” without being shamed further.
She says it’s still important not to leave dogs in hot cars, as well as to think about how your posts on social media affect other people.
