Woman in court next month over dog death

Great news out today…SPCA Canterbury has laid a charge of reckless ill-treatment of an animal under New Zealand’s Animal Welfare Act against the woman responsible for leaving a Pomeranian to die in a hot car during the Christmas shopping season last month.

On 18 December, the dog was found dead in a parked car at the rooftop car park at The Palms Shopping Centre.  It was harnessed to its seat and muzzled on a day when temperatures reached 33.4 degrees C.

The court date has been set for 17 February.  Well done to the SPCA Canterbury for following through on this case.
