Seattle Animal Control officer Matthew Belue checks on a dog locked in a car in parking lot in Ballard in Seattle, Wash. on May 8, 2015. It was 68 degrees outside which can very quickly rise 15 degrees higher in a parked car. A concerned citizen noticed the dog panting and called animal control 30 minutes later. The owner returned to the car some time after Officer Belue arrived and the dog was alright. (© Karen Ducey Photography)
