This video was captured in front of the Barnes & Noble book store in Barracks Road Shopping Center, Charlottesville, VA.
Granted, the windows were cracked. But as the chart at the bottom of this page shows, my estimation that it was about 75 degrees at 10:30am on this date was pretty accurate. Assuming the dogs had been in that car for ten minutes, according to scientific research, the interior temperature would have risen to around 95 degrees; after twenty minutes, it would have risen to about 105 degrees.
Not knowing how long the dogs been in that car, I called the police, then went to speak to the managers of the Barnes & Noble and neighboring merchants, and asked them to summon whoever owned that car, to notify them that the police had been called for suspected animal neglect.
I waited around for a few minutes, but neither the police nor the owner showed up. At that point I had done all I could, and wanted to get Shayna out of the sun – as you can see, she was panting pretty hard.
