Dog left inside hot car 'crying and howling'

The dog was left inside the car by its owner with the window “only cracked open a little bit.” The poor animal was crying as it begged to be set free.


A witness heard the sounds of the crying and howling from a car in a supermarket car park on June 3, 2018.

The witness, who wanted to remain anonymous, said to Somerset Live, "I could hear the dog crying and howling and I could see the window was only cracked open a little bit.”

The dog was in the car for around 20 minutes until the owner arrived to let the canine out, according to the witness.

As revealed by the report, an announcement was made inside the supermarket, Sainsbury’s store, located in Sherborne, Dorset, for the dog to be let out.


The RSPCA, an animal rescue charity, had released statements warning the public about the dangers of trapping dogs in hot cars over the previous years.

The charity shared that it could be dangerous for the animals even if they had just been left inside for a couple of minutes.

In the 2016 data of the animal rescue organization, it showed that Somerset was included in the top ten list of worst places in the country for keeping dogs inside hot cars.

On the same year, exactly 7,187 reports were made to the charity’s emergency hotline. 23 percent of the complaints were made in just the month of July.

A spokeswoman for the RSPCA explained the importance of not leaving any animal inside a car or any building where the temperature can accelerate at a fast speed. She added that it does not even matter if it doesn’t feel that warm outside.

She said, “For example, when it’s 22C outside, within an hour the temperature can reach 47C inside a vehicle, which can result in death.”

The spokeswoman advised the public to call 999 and report an emergency such as a dog trapped in a hot car to the police since the charity may not be able to give a quick response compared to the authorities.
