Tyrann Mathieu loves his dog, King. He isn’t shy about that. So it’s probably not a surprise Mathieu was willing to do a video in conjunction with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) about the dangers of leaving your dog in a hot car. Anyone who has live in Arizona knows how crazy hot their car is in the summer when you first get into it after it has been sitting in the sun. Anybody with half a brain knows that leaving anything live — whether it’s a dog or a child — in that situation is simply stupid, not to mention criminal. Yet it happens, as we all know.
So Mathieu did this awareness video. It’s frightening, really, as go-pros mounted in the car show a increasingly sweaty Mathieu — wearing a t-shirt and jeans — try to keep cool as best he can and clearly not being able to help himself much. He lasts eight minutes before opening the door, wearing a look on his face as if he is about to pass out.
Obviously a dog — or a young child — won’t be able to get out of the car like that. It’s good for the Cardinals their key safety made it out himself.
Speaking of Mathieu and King, they will be part of the video series coming soon called “A Bird’s best friend,” chronicling Cardinals and their dogs.
