Walmart Employee Fired for Advising Customer Not to Leave Dog in Hot Car [VIDEO]

I thought we knew all this. Even on a moderately warm day, like today (Thursday) for example, it is simply too dangerous to leave a pet closed up inside a car.

A Walmart employee in Ontario, Canada knows that and advised a customer against leaving his dog–a Newfoundland with a heavy coat–in his truck while he shopped. She was told it was none of her business.

Cheney then notified the police who went into the store to speak to the man. The next day, she was called into her manager’s office and, when asked about the incident, said “If I did see something unsafe, that I would just go to the police if I thought it was necessary.” Cheney was fired on the spot.

What do you think? Should she have been fired for getting into what could be interpreted as a confrontational situation with a customer? Or was it the right thing to do in the interest of the dog’s safety?
