A man smashes the window of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle to save a puppy left locked up by its owner in England.
A man smashed the window of a Mercedes-Benz car, after observing that a small puppy was locked inside, on a very hot day. Police who answered the call confirmed that this person will not be punished for breaking the car windows because they had a valid reason.
According to information provided by those who witnessed the incident, the owner of the car left the 14-week-old puppy while he was doing some shopping.
When people saw the incident, they called police in Swindon, Wiltshire, reporting that a small dog was in distress and danger.

They also said that an anonymous person in the audience couldn’t bear to be a spectator and decided to break the car window to help the puppy.
After collecting all the information, the police determined that the actions taken by the anonymous person who decided to help the puppy were legal.
Several images show community support workers assisting and reviewing the puppy’s condition before returning it to its owner. Police and an RSPCA representative took it upon themselves to deliver the puppy, and the representative sent the owner a formal warning about the incident.
Wiltshire Police Inspector Steph Daly said:
People just don’t think something’s going to happen. They think, “It’ll be fine, it’ll only take five minutes, but with what’s going on in the world, we have to line up at the supermarkets and you know your commute will be longer. People love animals, and if they see something they don’t like, they’ll take action.
He also added that although very few of us harm our animals, recklessness or ignorance can lead us to commit a crime. The RSPCA advises people not to leave their pets locked in the car, as the temperatures reached are very dangerous.
Steph Daly said:
Sit in a car for five to ten minutes with no windows open and no air conditioning and see how long that can go on. However, we can sweat, dogs can’t. If you risk leaving your dog in a car, then to me you are reckless. You don’t intentionally try to hurt your pet, but it’s still reckless.
If you see a dog in the same situation, drooling and suffering from the heat, consider calling an emergency line. If the situation worsens and the police do not arrive, before acting to rescue him, take photos and videos as evidence and even better if there are witnesses.
This way, you will avoid being blamed for a crime, even if your intentions were the best.
Well, according to the laws of this city, if there is a legal excuse to do harm, it will not be considered a crime and no penalty will be imposed.
