PUPPY YELPED FOR LIFE AFTER BEING ABANDONED IN ROASTING HOT CAR

A passerby saved a puppy from roasting to death after it was left inside a car where the temperature had soared to 130F (55C), authorities said.

The dog, named Boomer, was abandoned in a vehicle in San Jacinto, California, earlier this week. The temperature outside had risen to 100F (37C).

Boomer yelped for his life and eventually got the attention of a stranger who rescued him from the car and subsequently called the police.

Officers later found and arrested Boomer’s owner on an animal cruelty charge, Riverside County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Boomer was later placed inside an air conditioned patrol unit when Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived.

Riverside County Sheriff’s Office issued a warning to animal owners to keep their pets out of cars when the weather is hot.
