Former Dallas Cowboys and collegiate football coach Barry Switzer recently discovered a puppy locked in a hot van on a brutal summer day. NFL.com reports he waited by the van until the owner returned and ended up buying the puppy to save it.
No where in the report does it indicate he called law enforcement to have the person investigated and potentially charged with animal cruelty. Switzer, in the NFL video, reports the puppy had a large and heavy tether around his neck. He said the man showed him photos to the parent dogs when Switzer offered to buy it.
The former coach found the dog a new home, but what about the person who locked it in the van? The NFL morning show crew failed to asked him if he called 911.
He downplayed the threat to the puppy, maybe in an effort to downplay his effort in saving him from harm. But the puppy was in a life-threatening situation.
