Dog Left In Hot Car: NFL Player and PETA Shows What Happens


dogs left in carArizona Cardinals defensive back, Tyrann Mathieu, teamed up with PETA to show the severe impact of leaving your animal in a car on a hot day. 
The animal rights organization challenged athletic Mathieu to sit in a car on a blistering 90-degree day to see how long he could withstand the heat.Mathieu aborted the vehicle after eight minutes when the inside temperature reached 120 degrees, but PETA’s underlying message is that dogs are trapped without an exit door.

“I seriously couldn’t imagine leaving my dog in a car like this,” Mathieu said a few minutes into the exercise. “I can’t wait to get out.”

The video says that dogs’ organs begin to fail by the time a car’s temperature reaches approximately 105 degrees. According to the video, that occurs within four minutes on a 90-degree day.

Mathieu plays professional football in Arizona’s desert climate, but the horrendous heat he experiences in this video is unbearable for any living animal.

“This is ultimately what it feels like to be a dog trapped inside of a car while their owner is probably in the grocery store,” Mathieu said.
