Dog dies after being left in hot car in Southeast
A dog was left in a hot car in Southeast on Tuesday where it eventually died, according to the Gastineau Humane Society.
In a Facebook post, the Humane Society said they responded to call after reports of a dog dying from heat stroke inside a vehicle.
They warned that even on a 70° day, temperatures inside a car can reach well over 100° in as little as 10 minutes.
"Within MINUTES your pet could sustain permanent brain damage, or DIE. Leaving your windows cracked does not cool down the car enough to protect your pet," the post reads.
