THE vehicle was parked in direct sunlight with no ventilation whatsoever. Furthermore, Sevilla was experiencing a heatwave at this time with outside temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius.
According to the Emergency Services, a neighbour in the Nervion area alerted authorities about the presence of a small dog locked inside a vehicle.
They noted that the car had been parked in the same place since 10.00am whilst there was a yellow warning in Sevilla about the high temperatures.
Local Police proceeded to break a window of the car in order to rescue the little Yorkshire terrier who was in a dire state. Officers estimate that although it was 40 degrees outside, inside the car it was at least 50 degrees Celsius.
The owner, a 49-year-old woman, was identified and sanctioned for her mistreatment of the animal who didn’t even have his vaccines in check.
