Heads Up! Don’t Leave Your Children and/or Pets in Your Vehicles; Spider-Man will Smash Your Window to Save a Life, Jail or No Jail

Just a Heads Up! The weather is now getting warmer, if I happen upon your vehicle with your pet/child in it and they look like they are in distress, I will be breaking your window and calling the cops on you, then finding you and locking you in my hot vehicle to see how you feel. I don’t care if you’ve left the windows down slightly, it’s not enough for them. 5 minutes in 20+ degree weather can end up turning the inside of a car to over 40+, 10 minutes is even worse so I honestly don’t care if you were just running into the store. If you’re going to be leaving your child or animal in the car, leave the AC on, don’t bring them with you, bring your child INSIDE with you (I know, that sounds so hard doesn’t it?) or find a place to tie your dog on in the shade.

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  Heads Up - Watch Out for Two Guys in a Baby Blue Truck in Callingwood Area

I already know what most of the comments will say,
“I only leave my pet in there for 5 mins, don’t touch my car… Blah blah blah.” So to that I say this,
I don’t care if it’ll only be a minute, if the child or animal look like they are in distress, I’m going to use my best judgment and decide what is best for them and not you or me.

ALSO!! I do not care about going to jail, I will always fight for what I believe in and if I go to jail once, it won’t stop me from doing it again.

– Your friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man.

    Better yet block the vehicle in call 911 fire will be there in 2 minutes then the owner gets charged

    • Cari Sware Cari Sware says:

      The owner doesn’t get charged. 99% of the dog calls the fire department gets are time wasters. They check the dog, the dog isn’t in distress. Congratulations, you just took an emergency service vehicle out of commission cause you wanted to play hero.

      If you have a scanner the fire department in some parts of the city are never busy or have no calls so just maybe that one station gets a call I have firefighter friends and they don’t like having no calls so it makes them happy to get to respond

    • Yes, let’s use violence and attack and threaten our neighbours with the authorities. Hat is a terrible idea. Stop trying to be a vigilante/crusader on top of your high horse.

      How about making sure what/who is in the car is alright, and sticking around to make sure the parent/owner is okay and realizes they made a mistake, or maybe there was a valid reason.

      Please, attacking people is no way to help. (I don’t mean physically attack)

  6. Ummmm… attempted kidnapping, forcible confinment to start off with. I hope you’ve thought this through.

    • Good Samaritan law would actually protect them. And they said they would call the cops. I imagine as they break the window.

      Or does that only apply if your drowning and screaming for help hmm? I can only give it to someone who can say I need help? So with that logic would also mean I can’t help someone who is unconscious or chocking or bleeding because it may be kidnapping or forced confinement.

      I would think better the kid or animal live then die because I waited for emergency services which can take time especially if they are busy elsewhere.

      I would gladly pay to replace a few windows due to error in judgment then see a kid or pet die because I didn’t have the guts to help.

      You have to prove the animal was in duress, just make sure you can do that.

    I support not leaving your animals in vehicles but think before you act. I took my pets into the vet in the city one nice day and planned for everything. After the vets my handicapped wife had to run into No Frills for a few things and we don’t have one in my small town. I first got out and walked the two dogs around the grassy area and picked up after them. I can see the wife when she gets to the cash through the big windows so i walked the dogs back to the car. I kept the car running with the air conditioning on so it was very cool with the car. When i seen my wife at the cash (Disabled so all i have to do is push the cart) I rolled down the windows and ran up to meet her. Not even 2 min i was back with a lady on her cell calling the police. I explained i spent every minute with them in the car and offered to show her how cool it was still in the car but she continued to tell me don’t go anywhere the cops are on the way. I Believe in protecting animals but you have to look at every situation differently. These dogs were not under duress and were at most times in an air conditioned car other than the two minutes i ran up to get the cart. For her to call me an animal abuser i snapped. I WOULD BE THE ONE PUNCHING OUT A WINDOW if i seen a dog in duress. Again don’t jump to conclusions until you get the whole story

    • 2 minuets to help your wife is different that an hour in your car.

    • Bri, tl;dr? (too long, didn’t read?)

      Here’s cliffnotes:

      * Perry thinks one should think before acting.

      * Handicapped wife needed assistance with bags. Perry left vehicle with animals in it for two mins. Upon re-arrival, someone was on the phone with police already.

      * Explaining he was only gone TWO MINS, the person didn’t want to hear it & said police coming.

      * Perry would personally punch out a window if he saw a dog in distress. His dogs were NOT in distress.

    • Perry Strand Perry Strand says:

      Thanks Jody! Exactly. But if you’re certain an animal or child is in duress then by all means, act!

    • Perry Strand Perry Strand says:

      The temp in my car was very cool since i had been running the air conditioning. The only reason i rolled the windows down was to let people know they were ok for the few minutes as well as if someone really wanted to they could have easily reached in and unlocked the doors and let them out. Saves on someone breaking window.

    • Perry Strand Perry Strand says:

      I agree. two minutes is different than an hour but try telling that to the crazy lady with the cell. To think i could have lost my pets because of someone jumping the gun.

  8. Perry Strand Perry Strand says:

    And then there’s the fact that you will be charged also. If your job depends on no criminal record i’d recommend phoning police first before you throw everything away. On that note. If the dogs in duress, do it.

    It was +19 in Leduc Canadian tire parking lot and I heard a dog barking and the girlfriend had to plead with me to not break the assholes truck window. Please make sure all windows are down for air flow…not just one.

    • Did you report it to the store ? What was the outcome?

      [0]
    • Alex Wolfe Alex Wolfe says:

      By the time we got back the vehicle was gone.

    • So a dog was barking it doesnt necessarily mean its in distress. My dog barks in its cage during dinner because she smells the food. Nobody is smashing my house windows to free her.

      What happens if you smash someones vehicle windows only to be attacked or biten by a startled and scared dog!

      Idk think letting the store know or 911 is probably safer when it comes to a dog in vehicle.

    Dude, SHUT UP! Seriously, people just wanting attention and to be Heros. Guess what. I will park my car in the shade when it’s up to 20, crack the windows, and go do what I need to do. If I’m parked at a restaurant, ill eat, and come check on my dog every 10 minutes or so. Just as I did all of last year with my Search and Rescue dog. Not once was my dog ever in distress. Got the fire dept. called on me once, and guess what happened… The called got charged because they were wasting time and resources. People like you do not use common sense. Let me make this very clear to you. If you break my car window trying to be a hero and my dog isn’t in distress, my dog will literally attack you and cause a LOT of damage. I’m sure he isn’t the only one. So you better make damn sure he is dying before you try to bust open my window!

    • This is also the reason why people gets dogs put down. If it’s not your dog, mind your own business in my opinion! Dogs that protect a vehicle should be allowed to ! Don’t be sticking fingers in the window or busting the window. I’ve sat with my dog in the summer in the vehicles and there not in any duress

    • Nina Maillet Nina Maillet says:

      Well we have to remember to be reasonable too, if it’s +20 and you are parked in the sun for any length of time, then it can get dangerous… But if the dog seems fine, just leave well enough alone. If you have a legit reason to believe the dog is in trouble, call the police dept and notify the management of the store and stay with the animal until help arrives. If the animal is UNRESPONSIVE, then fine, break a window and save a life.

    • Cari Sware Cari Sware says:

      Amen Nina! What people don’t seem to realize is it’s not against the law to leave your dog in a vehicle. The majority of dog owners love their pets like family and wouldn’t purposely put them in harms way. People are calling 911 when its 10 degrees and cloudy. Give your heads a shake.

  15. Trevor Myers Trevor Myers says:

    I have a dog and I have a truck with a sunroof I keep the sunroof wide open and the windows rolled down 30% of the way, she gets great airflow and it’s never too hot to leave her in there for 10-15min and I make sure she has water I would never leave my dog alone in an unsafe situation. I think before I act when it comes to her.

  17. I totally agree! Just make sure you check to see that the car is not running with the AC on! I had someone give me the stink eye when my dog was in the car when I ran into the store. The car was really cool. I do appreciate the concern though.

  18. Cari Sware Cari Sware says:

    Just because a dog is barking in a vehicle doesn’t mean it’s in distress. They bark! Especially when someone is peeking in the windows at them. Here are the signs to look for:
    1. Excessive panting or drooling.
    2. The dogs tongue has turned dark purple.
    3. The animal is behaving frantically — pawing at the window, or trying to stick its nose out.
    4. Loss of bowels.
    5. Lethargic, and unresponsive behaviour.

  19. Tannis Fong Tannis Fong says:

    I had something come up while out with my dog. I left the sunroof open, windows down almost enough to get his head out. Left water too. I also left a note on my window…. “gone for 20 mins, trying to hurry. If ny dogs seems to be in any distress, please call me at ___-____.” No calls. Came out to happy, not over heated pooch.

  20. Tannis Fong Tannis Fong says:

    Of an effort has been made to keep the dog comfortable … windows/water/air conditioning… I will stay near and make sure it is ok. If it is in distress, then I would (and have!) go into the stores nearby and have the vehicle owner paged. If no timely response, I have called fire.
