A small dog in Florida was saved from a miserable death from heat stroke thanks to an alert passerby, and the police. The dog, a Maltese, was left inside of a locked vehicle in a parking lot at Disney World. ABC Journalist Parker Branton Tweeted about the rescue effort on August 10:
“A Hollywood Studios park guest says she heard a bark coming from a car just before 5 Monday afternoon. ‘She looked right up into my eyes and said help.’ Looking around I saw an empty bowl and a parking receipt for 11:48 am!”
The good Samaritan, Jerry Dana French, was able to get the police to the vehicle, and the officer who removed the dog estimated that it had an hour or less to live.
The owner was eventually located inside of the theme park – as reported by People, police returned the dog to the owner, whose name was not released. Surprisingly, the person who left the dog inside of the vehicle did not get charged.
