Dog Dies After Being Left In Hot Car In Perth
One dog has died and two others are recovering
The RSPCA says the incidents happened in Balga and Cloverdale on Wednesday.
With the Balga incident, The Daily Mail reported that several people banded together to rescue a mastiff-breed dog after it was noticed it was stuck inside a Holden Astra with the windows wound up.
Temperatures topped 26 degrees in Perth on Wednesday, which could easily be even higher inside a vehicle.
Local woman Amy Middleton, who documented the unfolding situation on Facebook, explained that "once the photos were taken we tried opening the car and the doors were luckily unlocked", so the dog was able to be removed and carried to a shady area.
A vet nurse happened to be driving by the incident pulled over and attempted CPR on the dog, which was unsuccessful.
An investigation is underway.
