Mt. Olive targeting people who keep pets in hot cars
With mercury climbing into the 90s, Animal Control officers in Mount Olive are making sure that drivers aren't leaving their pets unattended in a hot car.
Animal Control Officer Willie Cirone says when he's on patrol, he's looking for cars with windows slightly cracked, or windows smeared by a dog that may have been inside.
Leaving a pet alone in a hot car is against state law. Offenders can face a $250 to $1,000 fine.
