This car was noticed parked in the electric vehicle charging station in front of the CVS in Magoun Square in Somerville with a heat-exhausted dog locked inside this past Thursday for close to 45 minutes.
All the windows in the vehicle were rolled up for almost an hour while the driver was out shopping and having a latte leaving the dog in the 90 degree temperature.
Somerville Animal Control and Somerville Police officers responded to the call and jumped right into action doing an outstanding job especially when the owner of the car/dogs owner tried to play victim with the police trying to turn the tables around.
The Somerville Animal Control‘s meter estimated inside temperature of the car to be between 88 to 95°.
The dogs owner was warned and released.
