In New Jersey, two dogs were left chained outside in freezing temperatures. Despite the -22-degree weather, animal control authorities rushed to rescue them. One dog, a 15-year-old pit bull, had no shelter and was barely surviving. The police were determined not to let the dog suffer for another 4-5 hours until sunrise. A political candidate expressed outrage and urged people to report such incidents to animal control. They reminded everyone that dogs can freeze to death in cold weather and immediate action is necessary.
