I'm not one to try to defend WalMart (ever), but I suspect the article isn't reporting everything about this story.  Pretty sure WalMart has a whole squadron of lawyers and HR people who know better than to fire someone who could sue back for wrongful dismissal.

 

Despite wearing the WalMart uniform at the time (presumably), I'm pretty sure she didn't confront the customer as a representative of WalMart; had she been another customer herself, or just a walker-by who happened to notice the dog in the car, she probably still would've done the same.  I don't see how WalMart would've terminated her employment based on this, so again, the article is probably leaving important details out.

 

Finally...the dog owner's a douchebag.  He's free to think that's "none of her business", but he must've missed the frenzy that takes place every single time some media decides to do a story about a child or animal left in a car on a hot day.  Knowing this community (I'm in Ottawa), I suspect this isn't the last we hear of it.
