A group of Good Samaritans were shocked when the owner of a French bulldog was more concerned with his broken car window after returning to his car four hours later leaving his French bulldog to suffer in 95 degree heat.
According to witness Hollie Marie Evans, the dog had been left in the vehicle at Frensham Ponds in Surrey and was seen by witnesses vomiting and panting heavily on Sunday afternoon. As people gathered around the car, they began to feed the dog water through the slightly opened windows. As the dog’s condition became more desperate, onlookers decided to smash the car window with a hammer. On her Facebook page, Hollie posted about her distressing experience:
“Just had the most disgusting experience at Frensham pond we arrived at 12.15 to find a French bull dog left in this car in 30 heat!! Us and 12 people tried to locate the owner, we had given the dog who was seriously struggling lots of water in a make shift bowl out of a plastic bag. Well you can see for yourself how the dog was doing I filmed it all after the dog being in the car for 40 mins we all decided the dog was struggling too much being sick and over heating and we broke the window and removed the dog after he started being sick again and has very distressed.”
The dog was rescued and turned over to the park rangers’ office.
“We have also been informed by the ranger that the owners were told they couldn’t bring the dog on the beach when they arrived as its too hot today the sand is boiling they were shown an area where they could take the dog the owners decided leaving the dog in the car with the windows cracked was the better option so they could still enjoy there day!!! Please share this the dog is now safe and cooling down the rspca and police have all been informed.”
After the owner returned, he was more concerned with the broken car window than the condition of his dog witnesses claimed. In the video, the owner acted confrontational. Onlookers stated the owner never thanked anyone – he was abusive and threatening to the people who saved his dog’s life.
On the advice of the police, the dog was returned to the owner.
