Temperatures on Saturday June 12, 2016 reached 91 degrees fahrenheit (33 degrees Celsius), more than warm enough to cause heat stroke for a pet left alone in a hot car.
According to Costa steps were taken to reach authorities and the car’s owner. “Police were called, there were announcements over the PA system asking the BMW owners to come to their car, and a reasonable amount of time had passed when he started smashing the window,” Costa told London Free Press.
The owner of the car showed up 50 minutes after the dog was let out of the car, said Costa.
The dog was okay after getting water. The Ontario SPCA was also informed of the situation and is now investigating the incident.
