It is the type of “punishment” that makes animal lovers furious…a punishment which isn’t really a punishment at all. According to Channel 3000, after Debbie Rohloff pleaded no contest to charges resulting from her leaving her dog to die in a parked car, she was given just probation.
Rohloff had no explanation for leaving her golden retriever, Kaylee, in a parked car in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on July 11. Kaylee died from heat stroke after three agonizing hours inside of the vehicle which was parked outside Lambeau Field.
Though Rohloff acknowledged that she knew that her dog was inside of the parked car, and confirmed that she hadn’t simply forgotten, she still won’t be headed to jail. Instead, the judge sentenced Rohloff to a year of probation and ordered her to work 50 hours at an animal shelter organization – the judge also rejected the prosecutor’s request that she be prohibited from owning pets in the future.
