According to the law, citizens are to report to the police if a car-bound animal looks threatened, but if the danger needs immediate action and the law officers are taking too long to get there, a person can smash through the windows to save the dog.

"I think that should just be logic. If you see a dog in distress, break the window if you can't find the owner. I think some people might take it a little far, like they see a dog in there and go a little nuts. I think it depends on the condition, but I think people may take advantage and go extreme," dog owner April Rocha told ABC 7.
