One of our anchorpersons did an experiment of sitting in a car in 60 - 70 degree heat and she said that got uncomfortable...I can imagine for a dog in a car w/ 82 to 87 degrees could still get over 100 in sunny locations. clearly abuse and unacceptable for animal control....where do they find these people.
