Concerned citizens confront pet owner who left dog in hot car over an hour

At Norman’s Bay in East Sussex, a crowd of concerned citizens confronted a pet owner who left his dog in his hot car for more than an hour. Temperatures in the area reached in the 70s as the crowd accused the man of “cruelty.”

According to the Daily Mail, as the owner of the dog returned to his vehicle, people shouted for him to take the dog home threatening to call the police. The man could be seen ignoring the angry crowd – finally stating he had been returning to his car to check on the dog.

And then the situation took on a more serious tone as the man filming the disturbing incident, Alun Elder-Brown, was kicked by the dog owner while pushing a woman concerned about the dog’s welfare. Elder-Brown is legally blind, and on his social media page posted the following:

“DOG LEFT FOR HOUR AND A HALF IN PUB CAR PARK IN SOARING HEAT

The owner, who has been reported to the police under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, then assaulted me. The police were called, not by me but a lady bystander. The policewoman informed me he would most definitely be reported for the crime of animal cruelty, though I am not pursing the assault.

The staff at the Star Inn at Norman’s Bay, East Sussex were most unhelpful and almost forgiving of the gentleman who assaulted me and left the dog in the car.

Note: I only showed up towards the later stages of this situation.”

When the dog owner removed his pet from the vehicle, the dog lapped up the dish of water offered to him.

The Sussex Police are investigating the incident. Mr. Elder-Brown said the man was reported under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, but he chose not to pursue an assault charge.

Come on everyone; leave your pets home in the summer. They are safer and will be much more comfortable.

    Good job for concerned citizens. Only comment I would have if the dog was in the car that long they should of called the police right away because it takes time for them to get there and the dog could of went in heat stroke and died before they could get him out. That on confronting someone with such little regard for the life or suffering of others could be violent. Only if he refused to get the dog out. In the states here if a pet in the car looks to be in distress and you know for sure the cars too hot inside you can break the window to get them out. With that message people might not want to caring more about their car than the dogs life but unfortunately still happens by morons. I can see tuning in and out somewhere right away but not this and just walking off for a hour, even 15-20 minutes in extreme heat. I left a thermometer in my car and it broke after it reached 120 degrees.
