Charges Laid in Hot Car Cruelty Case

Immediate Release – July 18, 2017

 

On July 17, 2017, Animal Protection Act charges were laid against Jeremy QUAILE, 45, of Calgary for causing an animal to be in distress as a result of failure to provide adequate ventilation or protection from injurious heat.

 
The remains of a female black lab were seized on July 12, 2017 from the community of Penbrooke after a report to Calgary Humane Society’s Protection and Investigations department. It’s believed the dog was left in an enclosed car for an extended period of time during which temperatures outside soared to as high as 31 degrees. The official cause of death was hyperthermia.

 
Brad Nichols, Senior Manager, Cruelty Investigations said, “While I cannot get into great detail of the investigation as this is an active file pending court, this is an important message for the public, in the peak of hot weather, and should serve as a sobering deterrent. Leaving an animal in a hot car, regardless of window position, is incredibly dangerous and can, as with this worst case scenario, result in property damage, charges and death.”

 
Brad Nichols will be available for comment at Calgary Humane Society throughout the day.

 

Dog in a Hot Car: What Are You Willing to Lose?

We get it! It’s a perfect day for a picnic. Pack up the dog, head out in the car and just pit stop at the grocery store on the way, right?

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as “only” 5 minutes when it comes to a pet in a hot car.

Things happen. Maybe there was a line-up, maybe you realized you needed ‘just one more thing’, maybe you ran in to an old friend. Pretty soon “only” 5 minutes becomes 10, 15 or 30 minutes. In the air conditioned store, you may not even realize how fast time has passed, but for a dog in a hot car, even 5 minutes can feel like an eternity. (more…)
