Woodstock: Charges Pending After Dog Left in Vehicle on Hot Day
It's a reminder to pet owners to not leave their animals in the car with these hot temperatures.
Friday afternoon police were called to the Zehrs parking lot located on Dundas Street in Woodstock to a report of a distressed animal inside a locked vehicle.
The temperature in Woodstock was around 34 degrees that day.
Concerned citizens alerted Zehrs staff of a small dog left in a van with no windows open and no water.
Police say staff attempted to page the owner in the store but they couldn't be located.
After about half an hour police were called. The owner was located a short time later with another page by staff.
Police say the investigation is still ongoing and charges of Cruelty to Animals are pending against a 42 year old female.
The dog did not require medical attention.
