see an animal locked in a car, what can you do? >> what you really should do is take a look -- never leave the animal until the owner comes back. and if the animal looks like it's okay at the moment, take the make and model of the car and go into the store or mall and have over the intercom it announced and hopefully the owner will come back. but when you do that, make sure somebody stays with the car and the animal. in the unfortunate case, if the dog is foaming at the mouth, its saliva is thick, it's panting, looks like it's really getting bad, you know, in that case call 911. get a witness and try to get into that car. >> i do know we have covered police officers and animal control officers have over the years smashed through a windshield to save an animal's life. >> if you have no time, that animal is relying on you to save it. >> we're not encouraging people to break windows. but report it. and take action.
