**** RCMP Media Release
On July 27, Chéticamp RCMP was called to the scene of a Corgi who was left inside a car on a hot day. The dog was showing signs of distress. The responding police officers were able to get the dog out of the car via the windows that were left open a few inches.
Police left a note for the owner, saying they could come pick the dog up at the detachment. The Corgi was cared for by RCMP members, and was very happy to pose for a few photos. When the dog’s owner arrived to pick the dog up, they were served a $410 ticket under the Animal Protection Act.
RCMP would like to advise pet owners to never leave their pets unattended in a vehicle on a hot day. Even though it may not seem too hot outside, the inside of a vehicle can become dangerously hot in a very short time.
This Corgi’s ‘ruff’ day got a whole lot better when the RCMP arrived.
