Two pet owners charged for leaving pets in hot vehicles
Police have charged two people in Orillia for leaving dogs unattended in hot vehicles without proper ventilation. On Monday afternoon there was a complaint at a business off of Murphy Road. There they found a dog in a vehicle which had its windows down just 2 inches. The inside was very hot and the temperature outside was 25 degrees Celsius. A second vehicle was also found at the same location with a dog in distress. The windows in that case were down 2 inches as well and the dog was panting. Both owners have now been charged and face fines of $485 each.
