The dog’s temperature was found to be higher than usual, but nevertheless the overheated hound didn’t seem overly traumatized. Furthermore, once the veterinarian had lowered the animal’s temperature, the rescued doggo was thought to have made a complete recovery. LCHS inspectors managed to track down the dog’s human, who was more than happy to co-operate with their enquiries. In fact, he made a shocking statement.
According to Strooband, the man seriously thought that his barely open windows would be enough to keep his dog cool. Speaking to local news website Niagara this Week, Strooband said, “It’s a typical excuse, along with ‘I wasn’t gone that long,’ [and] “It’s not that hot out,’ and ‘I was parked in the shade.’ None of those are good enough.”However, because the canine in question was not permanently harmed, its owner did not get charged under animal cruelty regulations.
