Dog dies after being left in scorching hot car in SA for 5 hours


An Adelaide woman who left her two dogs in a hot car for 5 hours, resulting in one of them dying, has been given a suspended jail sentence after being convicted of animal cruelty.

The woman was given a 1 year good behavior bond in Elizabeth Magistrates Court on Monday.

RSPCA South Australia says that in March last year, a member of the public called police and the RSPCA after noticing the two dogs suffering in a hot car.

Officers were given the all clear to smash the vehicle’s window in order to rescue the Maltese dogs.

“Their quick thinking saved the life of Zoe, one of the dogs,” RSPCA SA said in a statement on their Facebook.

“Tragically it was too late for the other dog, who died from severe heat stroke”.

The woman was fined $3,500 for veterinary and legal fees and was also banned from owning any animals.

The RSPCA said that surviving dog Zoe has since made a miraculous recovery.

“Zoe – lucky to be alive – has since made a full and miraculous recovery, has since been adopted from our Lonsdale shelter and is a reminder that some happiness can come out of such a tragic situation.”
