On Sunday afternoon, the body of a dog who apparently died of heat stroke, was found inside of a parked vehicle in Palm Springs, California. According to the Press Enterprise, the authorities were contacted after passersby noticed a motionless dog inside of a vehicle parked on the 1800 block of Smoke Tree Lane.

The Palm Springs Police Department issued a release about the tragic incident which claimed the dog’s life:

When officers arrived they were met by several hysterical people who immediately took officers to a locked car where a motionless dog was located inside the vehicle.
As the officers arrived on scene they were also met by the vehicle’s owner who immediately opened the vehicle door.
Unfortunately it was too late for the animal as the animal had passed away. The temperature outside was 70 degrees F and the interior of the vehicle was well over 86 degrees. The animal was taken to a local emergency clinic and the animal’s body temperature registered to be 104 degrees.

The man who owned the dog has been identified as 38-year-old Brent White of Palm Springs. White was arrested and booked in the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning, CA, on a charge for causing Great Bodily Injury To Animal Left Unattended In Vehicle.

    There is NO excuse for leaving your dog in a hot car like this! If you were going to be away from your vehicle that long, then take the dog with you or leave it home! POS deserves any punishment he gets, he killed his dog!

    I hope the prosecutors in this case do NOT use “Realignment” to let this POS get away with this. There is not one person with a brain that would leave a dog in a car in Palm Springs!! I would put money on drugs and or alcohol being involved. AND the idiot, BRENT WHITE is from Palm Springs according to the article. Stupid shit, you know better!! I hope you get fried this time, in jail, by the courts and all welcome vigilantes!

    Keep arresting them!! There is no reason at all to take your pet in the car with you if you are going to have to GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE AND LEAVE THEM ALONE!! Leave them at home in the air conditioned house!

      You are absolutely correct, resqdogz! California just passed the law OKing people breaking car windows to save dogs. I have a feeling the dog was already deceased when discovered. But, they still should have broken the window on principle alone. Hopefully Brent White, dog killer of Palm Springs, gets the hell he so deserves.
