Animal Control officer busy today with dogs locked inside hot vehicles
Photos and information from reader Roberta White:
This dog was in a truck in the Walmart parking lot in Batavia for 20-25 minutes minimum before dispatch was contacted and law enforcment officers arrived at about 2 p.m.
An animal control officer said the dog was definitely uncomfortable. She said if it was an older dog, it would have been in serious trouble.
She also said it was her third call to Walmart today. She's had made four or five trips in Genesee County today for dogs locked inside hot vehicles.
The truck owner was paged in the store while officers tried to unlock the vehicle. Surface temperature inside was 102 degrees. It's 80 degrees outside.
