Try being the cop that has to respond to these calls. Sure, if you leave your dog in a hot car in the summer, that's one thing. The winter is completely different. I have had more than one dissatisfied complainant on these nonsense calls. The best was someone who called in about a mistreated cow. Cow was fine, caller just had no understanding of how cows live. The owner just said, "well, I'll just kill it then." It was glorious.
