The pitbull had been abandoned by her owner in the car. Doors and windows were closed. The sun was heavy and the temperature was 35ºC in Aspe, Alicante.
She was literally running out of air when the police arrived. Officers had been called for the alleged illegal occupation of a residence that they never found. Instead they found the car with the dog inside.
After some vain attempts to encounter the owner, they decided to break one of the windows in order to release the pitbull. An agent even got cut in the process.
Some hours later they discovered that the owner of the vehicle was a Bulgarian citizen of 29 years, but they couldn’t find him. He will be facing charges for animal abuse.
