Woman's 2 dogs die ater being left in hot car
WARWICK, N.Y. (AP) -- Police in an upstate New York town say they're investigating the deaths of two dogs that a pet sitter mistakenly left in her car on an 80-degree day.
Sandi Maddock of Warwick in Orange County tells the Times Herald-Record of Middletown that she left her 11-year-old and 15-year-old mixed-breed dogs with her pet sitter while she went to work on July 21.
Maddock says the woman later called her to tell her the dogs had died. The woman told Maddock she had left the dogs in the car after returning home from a shopping trip, got distracted and forgot the animals were still in the vehicle.
Temperatures that day reached 86 degrees.
Maddock says she doesn't want to press charges, but Warwick police say they're investigating the incident.
