A dog died after being left outside on a fire escape for several hours in the blistering heat. The temperature climbed to nearly 100 degrees on Sunday when the female dog, described as a “Cane Corso type,” was on the fire escape in Brick, New Jersey, reported

The man accused of leaving the dog to die

The man facing charges for leaving the dog outside to die is identified as 29-year-old Jonathan Correa; he was not at home while the dog suffered in a cage during the intensely hot weather. By the time that help arrived, the dog had already lost consciousness and was in “distress.” Though she was not dead when the officer arrived Sunday evening, the damage was already done and she passed away by Tuesday morning.

Police statement about cruel incident

In a statement, the police said, “The dog was evaluated and treated throughout the night for life threatening injuries. Unfortunately, the dog’s condition deteriorated and she succumbed to its injuries early Tuesday morning.”


Correa is facing charges for failing to provide necessary care to an animal or living creature, exposing an animal to adverse weather conditions, failing to provide a shelter of the proper size, failing to obtain a dog license.

Pets and hot weather

It should go without saying, but pets need to be offered shelter and cold water when it is hot outside. The best place for pets is inside with their families – if that is impossible, adequate shelter from the intense sun must be supplied, in addition to plenty of cold, fresh water.

    Neighbors need to be more vigilant and aware of things going on around them. The life of this dog could have been saved if somebody had seen and spoke up! RIP pup!

    Disgusting that this innocent dog is gone and this scum lives on. Should have been the other way around. Useless cretin needs jail time and payments to the vets for treating this dog too.

    Put that maggot in a cage, stick it out on a hot blistery tar surfaced roof and let it suffer until it’s dead. Sorry I gave no mercy for shit heads like that.

    Another example of a brain dead moron who thought of nothing other than themselves. Jonathan Correa allowed his dog to bake to death and SHOULD pay for it – not that the judicial system in New Jersey will do one damn thing about it – so a drive by would be in order to get rid of this useless hunk of human garbage – hope he encounters one real soon.
