11 Times The Summer Heat Was Too Much For Animals To Stand

Too. Hot.

We don't know about you, but summers in the city are the WORST. Not only does all the concrete and asphalt suck up heat, it holds it for hours, long after the sun has gone down, turning the night into sleepless hours of sweltering under blankets of miserable heat.

Even pets hate the heat. Take a look at these 11 photographs of animals trying to cool off. They may inspire you to think up some creative measure to stay cool until the fall returns.
