A woman who allegedly left her dog in a hot car for at least 20 minutes was cited into court by Clarksville Police yesterday afternoon.
Officer Crag Chatigny was called to the Wilma Rudolph Boulevard Wal-Mart around 12:30 and found a dog panting from the heat in a pickup truck with the windows cracked several inches.
The report says there was no water in the vehicle for the dog, which was reportedly breathing hard. The dispatch center said the temperature at the time was 91 degrees with a heat index of 98.
The animal’s owner, 24-year old Sarah Mohler of Clarksville, was cited on cruelty to animal charges.
