In Oakland, Pennsylvania, a New York State man was arrested and jailed on Wednesday night after police state he went to a Phish concert and left his dog in the hot car for hours. Drew Davis faces charges of animal cruelty, possessing contraband, disorderly conduct, aggravated assault and resisting arrest.
According to WtaeNews, Davis, 36, had been attending the concert at Oakland’s Petersen Events Center. The dog, a Presa Canario brindle, had been locked inside the car with no water. The windows were cracked a few inches, but police say it was about 80 degrees with high humidity. The dog appeared “dehydrated, hot and scared” as seen lying in the backseat on top of clothing and trash.
After evaluating the situation and the dog’s apparent distress, police broke two side windows to free the dog. When Davis returned to his vehicle, he was argumentative and combative with officers, asking them what happened and where was his dog? Police informed Davis his dog needed veterinary treatment; the owner disagreed and stated he had driven from Louisiana without any problems.
The scene between Davis and the police drew a large crowd, and people leaving the concert cheered the police for arresting the dog owner. Davis was arraigned on Thursday and is currently free on bail.
