FREDERICK, MD — You’ve no doubt opened your car on a hot summer day and said something to the effect of, “It feels like an oven inside.”
Well the truth is your car really can be an oven. Outside a car lot in Frederick, Maryland on Thursday, members of the Humane Society baked cookies on a car dashboard.
The point was to show how dangerous it is to leave pets– and people– in a car on a hot day.
The temperature inside a car can rise to more than 120 degrees on a summer day, even with the windows cracked.
Earlier this month, a yellow lab died after being left in a hot car in Maryland and the owner of a Yorkie was cited for the same reason. How very sad and stupid.
The cookies did actually cook; in fact, they ended up getting a little overcooked on top.
So have some sense with what you leave in the car: babies/kids, pets, plants or groceries. Now go get some ice cream with a cookie on the side!
Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds
