I would hope the Queen would be inside an air conditioned suite. They actually forbid pets out on the hiking trails around town when the temp is over 100F, but people are still allowed and are crazy enough to hike the mountains even at 120F. Firefighters still have to climb up and rescue the hikers too, and I am sure they are tempted to drop one every now and then.
