New Hampshire Proposes Hot Car Law

New Hampshire Senate Bill 608 would allow individuals to take measures to rescue an animal from extreme temperatures, such as in a car on a hot day, as long as there is a witness, law enforcement has been contacted, and the individual reasonably believes that law enforcement will not arrive in time to prevent the animal from being harmed or killed. The bill also exempts such individuals from liability for damage resulting from reasonable steps to rescue the animal.
