TV news anchor Kyle Clark, from NBC's News 9 in Colorado, took to the airwaves this week to share a powerful story and a heartfelt apology - that he hopes will resonate among people with pets.
In the very personal and stirring segment, Clark describes an encounter he had on a hot day recently in a Denver parking lot. It was there that he heard the cries of a small dog trapped inside a car, left unattended to suffer in the scorching heat, and was compelled to try to help.
"I thought about putting a rock through someone's car window today," Clark says. When he saw the dog in the car, he called for assistance on behalf of the stranger's pet. But all that person did was laugh him off.
