This is a big DUH, but of course you should never leave your pet in your car for any period of time in the heat and soon in Michigan it could be illegal. Also according to WILX, there is currently no law in Michigan that makes it illegal to leave animals unattended in cars. Now that could change as the Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee is meeting today to review a bill that was introduced last year that would make it illegal to leave pets unattended in a car if the conditions could endanger the animal, such as lack of water and food or extreme temperatures.

If the bill is passed, there could be fines as well as jail time. To see more on the bill and its penalties check it out here.
