Three dogs left in a parked car on a scorching summer day last week were seized by Whistler bylaw officers, with the assistance of police, according to an RCMP release.
Mounties assisted bylaw on Saturday, Aug. 20 after a report came in that the dogs had been left in a parked vehicle. Police were able to gain entry to the vehicle, noting the temperature inside was 29 C at the time, and, along with bylaw, gave the canines some “much-needed water.”
Bylaw officers seized the dogs before transporting them to Whistler Animals Galore. A violation ticket was issued to the owner, who later picked up the dogs.
