New pet law is a good one

I’m happy about the new law in Tennessee that allows people to break into hot cars if an animal is trapped inside – without fear of punishment. I, for one, am sick of hearing about people bringing their animals with them to the store or restaurant and walking off, leaving their animal inside to smother in the heat of a parked car. The law, which went into effect July 1, extends the state's Good Samaritan law from including just kids to pets too.
