Murcia police rescued a dog which had been left inside a vehicle at the Nueva Condomina shopping centre.
Luckily, the dog survived, whilst the owners will be dealt with on suspicion of offences of the mistreatment of animals.
Always, at this time of year, the warnings are the same but still not realised by some. Dogs Die in Hot Cars.
Remember, if you see a dog in this position, call the police immediately, or use the 112 emergency number.
Another myth that is shared in connection with this subject is that if you take action and break into a vehicle yourself you will not face charges. This is not true. You must call the police and they will take action. You must not intervene yourself directly.
