Authorities want to get rid of hot dogs in Los Angeles.
Using a poster dog named Bilby, prosecutors Thursday launched a campaign to remind pet owners that it is a crime to leave an animal unattended in a hot car.
The poster shows Bilby sitting in a pan in an open oven. It reads: "Hot oven, hot car . . . It's the same thing."
Deputy Dist. Atty. Deborah Knaan, the department's animal cruelty case coordinator, said loving one's pet means leaving the animal home when it's hot.
