Punish Pig Owner Who Allegedly Left Animal in a Hot Car

Target: Xavier Becerra, Attorney General of California

Goal: Charge and prosecute owner of a pig allegedly left inside a hot car.

A pig was rescued from a hot car in California, just moments before he could have died from the heat. According to news reports, the authorities discovered the pig sitting in the back seat; thankfully, they were able to track down the owner and release the pig before it was too late. However, there is no word on whether the owner will be charged.

Leaving animals in a locked vehicle is not only dangerous and cruel, but illegal, especially during the summer months. This particular pig was lucky, but many other animals have not been; many dogs or cats have died in the past few years after being left alone in hot cars. The heat inside a car rises very quickly, making locked vehicles of any kind near-instant tombs for animals and small children alike. This holds especially true for states like California, which are perpetually warm.

It is unknown as to why the owner allegedly allowed the pig to remain in the vehicle alone, but regardless of intentions, there is no excuse for endangering an animal’s life in such a way. Sign this petition to ensure that the owner is charged for allegedly endangering the pig, and prosecuted if found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Becerra,

The owner of a BMW reportedly left their pig in the back seat alone, with the vehicle locked. The authorities thankfully rescued the animal in time. However, had the animal been left alone in the vehicle any longer, he could have died like many animals within the past few years. Being left alone in a vehicle on a hot day is one of the main killers of animals, especially during the summer months, and such a thing has been illegal for decades.

It is unknown as to whether the owner was or will be charged. Whatever their reasoning, however, there is no excuse and such actions must not go unpunished. You must ensure that the owner faces charges of animal neglect and cruelty for allegedly endangering the pig’s life, and that they are prosecuted if found guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Its amazeing how forgetful people are .so many die in hot cars ca has a law now u can break window is there a law stateing if u kill ur pet u go to jail for ayear …….i havent heardof one …….maybe it would help wake people up .. kids and animals die every year..change the law and put people on notice its a crime .thank goodness this one was saved.thank you to whom ever had the compassion and love and bravery to step in and help

  3. I cannot understand that it so hard to grasp that the weather is hot and any life trapped in a greenhouse-or a car is soon going to be overheated to the point of death? It isn’t rocket science, is everyone stupid? What if it were a baby? Whatever, there should be one very large punishment for any person causing suffering or death in a hot car and no complaints if the car window has been broken. It’s not only stupid, but also selfish, brainless, uncaring and mindless. These people need to be taught a hard lesson they won’t forget!

  4. I hope the pig was taken away at the very least and taken to a farm sanctuary.

  5. If this one incident of pig abuse makes you squirm, then so should all of the pigs stuck on factory farms… Think about it.

  6. Punish these monsters and ban then from ever owning animals as they are too irresponsible,stupid and cruel to take car of them.

    Place this poor pig in a real home where they will take good care of him.

  7. HELL AWAITS THESE ANIMAL ABUSERS NOW.
