Washington bar hopper left sweatpants-wearing pig in sweltering, poop-filled car

Published

Police in Seattle say that they have warned a Washington man after he left a pig wearing sweatpants in a poop-filled car.

According to KIRO radio, officers discovered the pig along with a panting dog inside the man’s car on Saturday night.

“There was no food or water or anything for the animals, and there was quite a bit of feces in the vehicle,” Seattle Police Detective Renee Witt told the station.

The man explained to police that he had gone drinking for about 45 minutes at a Magnolia bar and had left the doors unlocked and the keys in the ignition, Witt said.

Officers opened the door to provide some fresh air and got the animals some water to help them cool off. A police report indicated that it was still 86 degrees outside, but likely much hotter inside the car at the time.

“After warning the owner about leaving animals without water in a hot car, the man grew agitated and asked officers to show him the poop in the vehicle,” Seattlepi.com reported.

Officers agreed to the man’s demands and pointed out the feces.

The man reluctantly agreed to take better care of his animals and was not cited. The case has been turned over to Renton Animal Control.

The City of Seattle website advises “pet owners to exercise good judgment and use common sense when it comes to protecting their pets from the summer heat.”

“Each summer, we receive hundreds of calls about pets locked in cars on hot summer days,” Seattle Animal Shelter Director Don Jordan said. “Even dogs left locked in cars in the shade with the windows cracked on hot days are at risk of brain damage or death. Dogs must cool themselves through panting and their systems can’t handle high temperatures.”

While sweatpants may not be proper summer attire for pigs, the city recommends a “porch or shady tree, and always provide cool water” for animals.

House Intelligence report on Trump is scathing — but does anyone really care?

Published

on

On Wednesday of last week, the House Intelligence Committee issued its impeachment report on President Trump. The facts are clear. Trump has engaged in obstruction of justice, abuse of power and other high crimes and misdemeanors in his effort to extort or bribe the government of Ukraine into aiding him in the 2020 presidential election. Donald Trump also usurped the power of Congress to allocate public money in the form of military aid to Ukraine. Trump has also repeatedly invited foreign countries to interfere in America’s elections on his behalf.
