A family came to the Sea to Skies Gondola in Squamish, BC, with the intentions of being out for a number of hours while sightseeing as made obvious by leaving their dog behind in the car on a very hot day while wearing a baby diaper.
Bystanders could not believe what they were seeing and alerted the authorities. The police and BC SPCA appeared and freed the bad pup from the car.
Temperatures in the vehicle had reached 100-degrees Fahrenheit, and the dog was visibly shaken. The family came back and declared their dog but would not be fined more than $300 as the Avoidance of Cruelty to Animals Act states such charges are only put in situations where the pet passes away or shows a lot more evidence of suffering.
