Dog has to fight for his life
Passers-by alerted the police on Thursday (4 August). They noticed a parked car on a street in Bayreuth (Bavaria), in which a dog was sitting all alone. The animal was exposed to the blazing sun in the vehicle and was already panting for its life, according to a police statement.
The owner had placed a water bowl in front of the four-legged friend. But apparently he had underestimated the life-threatening exertion. The officials quickly took drastic action and smashed a window of the car to free the animal.
However, when officers searched the vehicle for contact information about its owner, they suddenly could not believe their eyes.
