OK, it’s not exactly illegal to save your pets from a burning house. But it can get you arrested if you’re in Florida.
Henry Morgan’s house was on fire, and he tried to go back in to save his wife, relatives and pets Firefighters stopped him. He tried again, and they stopped him again. After this back-and-forth hubbub went on and on, everyone got hot, so to speak. Morgan got mad, and so did the firefighters. The firemen apparently had to stop fighting the fire to keep Morgan (shown here) out of the burning building. Eventually, they just arrested him.
I can see both sides of this one. If your Morgan, you want to do everything you can to make sure your pets survive. If your the firemen, you want to do everything you can to make sure everyone survives, even the guy climbing in the window of his burning house.
So I’m with them on arresting him. It was for his own protection. But charging him with several crimes? Really? Totally unnecessary. They lost five cats and four dogs. Thankfully, all his relatives survived.
The man lost everything he owns, including nine pets. Don’t add insult to injury.
