Please folks--know to never leave any living thing in a hot car. This is such a waste of a precious Golden and the time and effort involved in training him.

We had a police dog die from being left in the patrol car for hours on a hot sunny day here.

The community was outraged and people even picketed outside council meetings in support of justice for the dog.

If you or I killed a police dog, we'd be charged with murdering a police officer.

Unfortunately, the policeman responsible was not fired, but his pay was garnished to pay for a replacement.

I remember reading about that. Those dogs are so expensive. I hope he was charged interest as well. I simply do not understand how anybody could be so stupid or otherwise occupied to leave a lliving thing in a hot car.

He should have been charged with at least animal cruelty! Again, a member of the general public would have been.

By the way....this applies even more so to ferrets. Ferrets are very intolerant of high temperatures.

This kind of stuff is completely unavoidable.

I witnessed a concerned person trying to help a dog in a hot car just last week. The vehicle was parked in full sun on asphalt in front of a grocery store during the afteroon. I am not sure how she confronted the owner, but by the time I was there unloading groceries into my own car, animal control and a police officer were involved. The owner was irate and said her dog was fine. The windows were cracked, but the dog inside was panting very heavily. The thermometer on my car was reading 86 degrees. I do not know why the dog was left inside panting while the owners and officers and concerned citizen were arguing the details. Made me sick. And sad. Leave your pets at home, folks.

If someone breaks in to save the dog, they get charge and have to pay for the broken window. Seeing animals left in a hot car makes me incredibly angry. There is no excuse for it, period.

How terrible. And it was the program director! How could she have not known not to do this! That makes it worse.

I confronted someone in Wilmington once about their dog in the car. I was on the phone with the police when the people came out of the store. They drove off, but surely did it again.

Of course we shouldn't be surprised when you hear of this happening with human babies every Summer!

You can't fix stupid.
