You Can't Make This Shit Up Dept.

New law supports first responders who treat injured pets

The law will allow first responders to, without fear of liability, provide oxygen, perform mouth-to-snout resuscitation, try to stem bleeding, bandage and even administer the overdose antidote naloxone to dogs or cats that have ingested opiates.

Liability has been a concern because owners of pets have sued first responders who treated animals that ended up dying.
