Husky Collapsed On The Floor – Freed After 2h In A Hot Car

Cars, summer heat, and dogs are nearly always a fatal combination, so this distressed doggie was no exception, being trapped inside the car for two hours was awful for him…

The pictures of this scene are quite disturbing, the husky was flat out on the ground after being released from the car by the police as temperatures outside were around 85 F.

The dog’s owners returned to the car, but they didn’t see that they had done anything wrong at all, so a witness said…

It was a parking ticket which gave a clue to the length of time the distressed dog had been in the car, around two hours it was believed.

Temperatures in a car quickly rise, especially without any ventilation, and for any animal, even a human it gets to be dangerous and even lethal.

Samantha Claire Hardwidge was the person to discover the hot husky in Swindon, Wiltshire, along with a colleague, she then shared the pictures online.

She said:

“Shout out to the owners of this car who felt it appropriate to leave their husky in their car.”

“The parking ticket shows them arriving at 10:47 am. The dog was found by me and my colleague in a poor state at 12:35 pm – with the parking ticket showing they could park until 1:46 pm.”

“The police were called and removed the dog from the car. The owners arrived back at the car and proceeded to shout and swear that they didn’t see what the problem is.”

“The owners refused to take the dog to the vets to be checked despite it being visibly distressed from being in the car for so long.”

“The owners refused to pass their details to the police. The dog was seized so it could be checked by a vet.”

You can see the husky lay on the floor in distress after being released from the car, with some water beside him…

The post got over 15,000 shares and 5000 comments from people that were angry about what had transpired.

Kay Sell said:

“Disgusting, the owners should be locked in the car for several hours and then go to jail if they are still alive.”

Susan Barker said:

“Bad enough to lock any creature in a car with this heat, let alone a husky type with their thick underfur. Morons.”

Wiltshire Police said:

“When we arrived the dog was heavily panting and not responding. The window was slightly open but the dog was obviously in distress.”

“We managed to get the dog out and a kind member of the public got the dog some fresh water. Fortunately, the dog perked up.”

“The owners arrived and we ensured that the dog was taken to a local vets for a check-up.”

A Wiltshire Police also said:

“It is not advisable to leave any animal locked in a car during warm weather, a car can become as hot as an oven very quickly, even when it doesn’t feel that warm outside.”

“The RSPCA estimates that in 22 degree weather, a car can reach an unbearable 47 degrees within an hour.”

“If you come across a dog in a car during warm weather, and you’re concerned that the dog appears uncomfortable you should call police on 101 to report it.”

“We managed to get the dog out and a kind member of the public got the dog some fresh water. Fortunately, the dog perked up.”

“The owners arrived and we ensured that the dog was taken to a local vet for a check-up.”

The police have not made any arrests but said that their inquiries were still ongoing.
