Chemnitz (dpa / sn) - The police freed two heavily panting dogs from a parked car in Chemnitz. Despite the hot outside temperature, the window was only open a crack, as the police announced on Thursday. It was only two hours after the dogs were rescued on Wednesday evening that their owner could be found. An administrative offense notice was filed against her for violating the Animal Welfare Act.
Shortly before, passers-by had seen a dog panting heavily in a car in the parking lot of a Chemnitz shopping center. In this case, too, only the rear window pane was open a crack. An announcement was made to locate the owner. A complaint was also filed against them.
The Chemnitz police asks animal owners not to leave their animals in the car when the temperature is high, because a vehicle heats up within a few minutes and the four-legged friends could suffer heat stroke.
