Late Wednesday morning, two dogs were found inside of a parked car in Louisville, Kentucky, when the temperature outside was over 90 degrees. As reported by WLKY News, by the time a concerned citizen alerted Louisville Metro police, it was too late; one dog had died and another was in severe distress from the heat. Louisville Metro Animal Services loaded the living dog into their vehicle for care, but the dog died before reaching the facility.

The dogs belonged to 21-year-old Kyle Cobb, who told officers that he had been “in the area” since 3:30 a.m. He was arrested for animal cruelty and booked into Louisville Metro Corrections.

It is not safe to leave pets alone in parked cars on even moderately warm days, and cracked windows are not sufficient to keep the interior of a vehicle cool. If you see a dog locked in a vehicle, please reach out to the police or animal services for help.
