The Scary Reason Boise Residents Should Check Their Car Engines

A warning from local and national animal organizations this week is a great reason to remind folks in Treasure Valley – it’s that time of year again.

Why Every Idahoan Should Check Under Their Hood

As temperatures drop in Treasure Valley, more and more animals are wandering around looking for a warm place to spend the night. In a perfect world, all of these animals would have a home to go to every night, but sadly, that’s not the case.

Annual warnings never seem to be enough to prevent this common problem around Idaho and beyond: animals hiding under car hood engines.

We wondered what it would be like and found a great informational video from a San Francisco animal patrol officer that was shown on TV. KEEP SCROLLING ON as we break down this common issue and watch the full video below:

We came across this warning in a local Boise Facebook group and thought to ourselves: can this really happen this often! ? Apparently, car hoods and engines are really nice, warm and protected.

Until the car starts.

According to Embrace, a national pet insurance brand, cars on the streets are easy shelters for small animals like squirrels or cats and while this may be the case, it is risking the animal’s life. .

Want to make sure you’re not going to hurt a cat before you leave, especially if you’ve been parked outside?

Take the occasional peek under the hood of your car and look for a furry friend, just to be safe. Additionally, a knock on the hood or a honk of the horn might also be enough to scare the furry creature away. If you spot one inside the car and can’t scare it off, put on a thick glove and see if you can pull it out yourself. Moving parts such as fan belts could kill the animal.
