Police are investigating after a dog in a North Las Vegas neighborhood died over the weekend. According to a neighbor, the dog “sat there and baked until it died,” reports News 3 Las Vegas. In the midst of the intense summer heat, the dog was left outside without shelter. The neighbor, who does not want to be identified, called multiple times to report the situation to the authorities, but help did not come in time.

The person who reached out to the police has stated that she was unable to reach the dog to give him water because of tall fencing around the yard. The good Samaritan tried for days to get animal control to come out to the home, but the calls for help went unanswered. Graphic cell phone video of the dog dying in the heat were shared on social media – the dog can be seen on the ground, gasping for air and clearly in distress.

The neighbor shared some of the emails that she sent to animal control – one reads:

“Its [sic] over 100 degrees out and it literally torturing an animal to death by denying it water and some kind of shade from the sun.”

And another:

“(it’s) been 3 days with no water or shade. 3 days? in this heat? The owner just put water out and the poor dog cannot get up to get to it,” she wrote in an email Saturday at 9:55 AM adding, ” CAN SOMEONE DO SOMETHING HERE? A slow heat fried death is torture.”

It wasn’t until Saturday that the animal control and police finally showed up – but it was too late for the dog who had been suffering outside in the heat. The police have confirmed that an active investigation into allegations of animal cruelty are underway.

    So why the fuck did you not get the dog and help it or report it before it died. Did you just casually keep looking through your f……window you stupid bitch. You are as guilty for letting this dog die as your cruel neighbour. SHAME ON YOU

      It says she couldnt get to the dog because of the tall fencing but called multiple times to the authorities. Your anger is at the wrong person. It should be at the asshole owner and the lack of laws, concern or protection of animals.
