PETA & ITD?

PETA and the Idaho Transportation Department may not seem like logical partners but they're teaming up to get the word out about leaving pets in hot cars.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has been lobbying ITD regularly regarding the issue, and earlier this month ITD's driver services manager informed the activist group that a warning will be added to the Idaho driver's manual about the danger of leaving cats and dogs in parked cars.
