To demonstrate the dangers of leaving a pet outside in the cold for too long, veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward filmed himself spending a freezing night in a doghouse during winter. He resolved to stay in there as long as he could "stand it."

Lots of people should be banned from having pets; leaving a pet in a cold environment is cruel and stupid. Well done Dr. Ward.
