Las Vegas man smashes car window at gym to save dog - KGTV-TV San Diego

Nevada Law says if a child is in a hot car, anybody can smash a window to save the kid under the Good Samaritan Law. But when it comes to pets, only first responders and animal control officers can smash windows. Huggins knew that but felt he needed to smash the window anyway to save the dog's life.


Stupid law.

"The dog owner came out of the gym and drove off with his dog before police arrived on scene."

It looks like the owner was either a ditz or left to avoid a cruelty charge. That should be an affirmative defense for the window breaker.

The window smasher should have said that he believed that the dog identified as a child.
