Puppy ‘forgotten’ in car suffocates in mall parking lot, rescue operation succeeds

The panting, exhausted puppy had been in the passenger compartment of the car for more than two hours. It was the Cap 3000 security guards, alerted by a witness very worried about the animal, who intervened this Saturday around 6 p.m. They called in the municipal police.

The vehicle was not exposed to the sun, but the temperature in the car parks of the shopping center is around 35°C, and it rises even more in a closed passenger compartment.

The master of the dog still not appearing, the municipal officials got in touch with a judicial police officer from Cagnes-sur-Mer who gave them authorization to break the window to save the animal, obviously in large distress.

Neither one nor two, security guards and municipal officers broke the rear left window. Barely broken, the Staffie (Staffordshire bull terrier), eager to find fresh air, jumped out of the vehicle, slightly injuring a pad. He was immediately taken care of, hydrated, groomed and cuddled.

A few minutes later, his master, a Niçois, presented himself to the police. The dog was finally returned to him, not without a firm call to order.
