On June 29, a woman was arrested after her dog died in her hot car in Pleasant Hill, California. Outside temperatures were more that 100 degrees. Police broke into the car and took the dog to the vet, but they were too late.
A day later, police rescued a cat and dog from a hot car in St. Helena, California, as the owner was off wine tasting. It was 94 degrees “in the shade,” said St. Helena Sgt. Scott Fleming. “On concrete, in a car half in the sun, it was much hotter than that. It was an oven in there.”
A day later, police charged a New Hampshire woman with cruelty to animals after allegedly finding her dog in a hot car in the Short Sands Beach parking lot in Maine. The dog was “panting and looking distressed.” The owner arrived and was “rude,” and said she didn’t leave water in the car because the dog spills it.
