PETS LEFT IN VEHICLE

(HAWKESBURY) – Over the summer months, Ontario Provincial Police officers attend calls about pets left in unattended vehicles.

During warm weather, pet guardians must take precautions against the danger of heat exhaustion and heatstroke for their pets. The temperature in a parked vehicle, even in the shade with the windows partly open, can rapidly reach a level that could seriously harm or even kill your pet. Leaving your pet in a car with the air conditioning on is also taking a risk as many pets have died as the result of a faulty air-conditioning system.

Dogs (and cats) cool themselves by panting and by releasing heat through their paws. On summer days the air and upholstery in your vehicle can heat up to high temperatures that make it impossible for pets to cool themselves. Your dog will be more comfortable if left at home.

Symptoms of heatstroke

– Exaggerated panting (or the sudden stopping of panting);

– rapid or erratic pulse;

– salivation;

– anxious or staring expression;

– weakness and muscle tremors;

– lack of coordination;

– tongue and lips red (which may eventually turn bluish in colour);

– convulsions or vomiting;

– collapse, coma and death.

Remember, if you see young children or pets left in vehicles, say something… 

Write down the description of the vehicle, make, model, color, and license number, and call the police immediately.

DON’T MIX ALCOHOL AND BOATING

The Hawkesbury Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) wishes to remind boaters that in Ontario, the consumption of alcohol by anyone on board any boat underway is unlawful. Boaters are allowed to have open alcohol only on boats with permanent sleeping, cooking and washroom facilities built into the boat’s design and only when those boats are docked or at anchor.

Whether operating a motorized boat, canoe or any other type of marine vessel, doing so while impaired by alcohol or drugs is investigated similarly to driving a land vehicle and has the same consequences. Impaired operators face criminal charges and immediate suspension of their driving privileges for motor vehicles.

OPP marine officers continue to patrol Ontario waterways, promoting safety through equipment checks, encouraging paddlers and small craft operators to wear their lifejackets and focusing on alcohol enforcement and deterring reckless behaviors.

Get on board…don’t drink and boat!
