This weekend, a French bulldog, left alone inside of a parked car for five hours, died of apparent heat exhaustion. According to CBS Boston News, two New Yorkers were arrested in Massachusetts on Sunday evening for the dog’s death.
The sad situation was discovered at the Salem Commuter Rail Parking Garage Sunday evening – transit police were alerted to the presence of an “injured” dog inside of a car around 6:00 p.m. By the time that the authorities arrived, it was confirmed that the three-year-old dog named “Nigel,” was dead.
Police arrested Brendan Bulfin, 38, and Courtney Casey, 28 – the duo is facing animal cruelty charges as a result of the deadly situation.
It is dangerous to leave any dog inside of a parked car on a warm day. Bulldogs are particularly sensitive to the heat and can encounter problems faster than other breeds of dogs.
