Dog locked in car in Walmart parking lot

posted by Billie Owens in batavia, animal abuse.

An officer is responding to Walmart after a complaint of a dog locked inside a vehicle. It's a four-door gray Chevy Impala parked in the last aisle of the food entrance near a fire hydrant.

UPDATE 2:15 p.m.: The officer is on location with the vehicle and the complainant.

UPDATE 2:31 p.m.: The dog is reportedly showing signs of distress. A Walmart employee is paging the registered owner of the vehicle.

UPDATE 2:40 p.m.: Apparently the owner responded. The officer is back in service.

I hate hearing about this also for the exact opposite reason, its ridiculous. stop calling the cops on dogs in cars. some dogs live their lives on chains and never get to go anywhere.

CJ - if the cops (or somebody) are not called, the dog could die. Whoever reported it did the right thing.

To those that think it's a bother to call the police about a dog locked in a vehicle should maybe put themselves in a car for 15 minutes at 85 degrees and see how it feels!! There is no reason for anyone to bring a dog shopping just to leave them locked in a car!!!! This happens so often and it's not right at all!!!! Maybe the law should allow for the animal to be taken. It is cruelty to the animal no matter how you cut it!!!!

Methinks that CJ doth protest overly much. Perhaps he has reasons for his paranoia of the police?!?
