Temperatures have started to climb in many parts of the nation, and already, someone has been arrested for making the poor decision to leave their dog unattended inside of a hot vehicle. According to KMPH News, a man has been arrested and he is facing a charge of animal cruelty after he left his dog alone inside of a hot truck in Fresno, California, on Sunday.
Thanks to the efforts of a good Samaritan, eight-year-old Peewee was rescued from inside of 62-year-old Ruben Rosas’ truck – the good Samaritan used a brick to break out a window of Rosas’ vehicle and the car owner wasn’t happy about it. Fortunately, the law was on the side of the good Samaritan and not only does he not have to pay to replace the broken vehicle window, but the car owner is facing a felony for leaving little Peewee inside of the hot car.
Fresno Humane Animal Services took custody of Peewee – Rosas might be able to get his dog back if he pays the necessary fees and fines, unless the court decides otherwise.
