Dog left in a car with windows rolled up, other dog incidents reported
The Park City Police Department last week continued to respond to calls about dogs, including one that involved a dog that was reportedly left in a car midday.
According to the police, the department was contacted at 2:12 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 8, when a red Dodge van was seen parked on the 1700 block of Park Avenue. A dog was inside, but the windows were rolled up, the police were told. The police said the owner arrived as the person was talking to dispatchers.
Veterinarians say leaving dogs inside cars with the windows rolled up is dangerous since dogs do not perspire like humans do to lower their body temperature.
Meanwhile, just earlier, at 2:07 p.m., the police received a complaint of a black Labrador roaming on the 1400 block of Snow Creek Drive. The owner was found and warned about leash laws, the police said.
On Wednesday, Aug. 6 at 10:08 p.m., two dogs reportedly disappeared from the 100 block of Sandridge Avenue. A third dog, though, stayed.
A person in their mid-70s told the police a dog bit them on Tuesday, Aug. 5 at 4:08 p.m. on the 8600 block of Empire Club Drive.
