Police: Dog dies in hot car while woman “browses” in Walmart store…for 13 hours!
FLORIDA (WITI) — A Florida woman was arrested last week — after police say she left her dog “Waldo” inside her hot car while she shopped at Walmart…for 13 hours!
WPEC in West Palm Beach, Florida reports the deceased dog was discovered by another Walmart shopper.
There was reportedly no food or water left for the dog — and even though a window was partially cracked, temperatures rose — resulting in the dog’s death.
Police say 49-year-old Cassaundra Rasmussen was inside the Walmart store — apparently “browsing” for 13 hours.
WPEC reports the woman told police she “forgot” the dog was in the car.
Rasmussen has been charged with a misdemeanor count of cruelty towards animals.
