I am an animal lover and there is no more helpless feeling than being in a parking lot and noticing that someone has left a dog in a car with the windows up or slightly cracked. There is no question what you want to do but can you legally break a car window to rescue a dog in New York state?
If you have been looking around for a new home watch out. This is like some real-life Home Alone movie stuff. There was a deadly and pretty massive booby trap that was found in a three-story house on the staircase.
