Signed and noted. In cases of obvious animal cruelty it should go without saying that people should be able to intervene to save the lives of the animals in distress. Relying on animal control officers sometimes seems like a waste of time, so why can't the people who discover the problem find another solution and step in themselves to do a rescue???

We're sitting in the triple digits with the heat index anywhere from 106-113, and I wouldn't leave my worst enemy out in this heat. What the heck is wrong with people that they don't care for anything but themselves? This is heartless and cruel!!!

already signed and noted. How anyone could leave a dog to die in sweltering heat like that is beyond me. Terribly sad for the dog. this person needs to be prosecuted for the neglect. A duty of care is expected towards animals in our care. To fail in that duty has serious and sometimes fatal consequences. We should be held to account if we let that happen.

Animal abuse sentences should not only be much harsher but implemented at ALL times!!! Disgusting human behaviour towards a member of the animal kingdom!
