It doesn’t have to be a scorching summer day for a dog to die of heat exhaustion trapped inside a locked, parked car. A Palm Springs, California dog owner was arrested Sunday when his dog died after being left alone in a parked car for three hours without any water or opened windows.

At approximately 2:40 p.m., officers were called to the scene of a parked, locked vehicle with a dog that was locked in a vehicle and inside. When they arrived they found several “hysterical people” at the scene, according to Palm Springs police.

The dog’s owner arrived at the same time and opened the car for investigators, but it was too late and the dog was already dead.

According to police, temperatures inside the vehicle reached 86 degrees. Veterinarians examined the dog at an emergency clinic and found his body temperature was 104 degrees, indicating that he’d died of heat exhaustion.

The owner was identified as Palm Springs resident Brent White, 38. He was arrested on suspicion of causing great bodily injury to an animal left unattended in a vehicle. White was taken to the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning and released after posting $2,500 bail. He is scheduled to appear in Riverside County Superior Court March 6.

  1. This is UNACCEPTABLE . We need to start charging these sub humans with MURDER> These helpless creatures depend on US to look after them. They have NO WAY of getting out of these cars . No way to call for help . Fines need to be in the THOUSANDS , and no more slaps on the wrist. Some serious jail time , will help these , idiots , remember that these animals are living beings. If you don't think it is that hot inside your car. Then YOU should be locked inside it , for 5 or 6 hours with no way of getting out. This has got to end. They should NEVER be allowed to own another dog EVER . If this is how much you care about them. You are just a heartless , inhumane moron. This is unforgivable.
