Have to let the dogs out

Cape Breton Post - - News -

HAL­I­FAX - It was Hal­i­fax po­lice who let the dogs out - and then fined their owner al­most $1,750 for al­legedly leav­ing them in a swel­ter­ing car. Passersby spot­ted the dogs “in dis­tress’’ at 12:40 p.m. Thurs­day on Clyde Street, near the cor­ner of Queen Street near the city’s down­town li­brary, and called po­lice.

Po­lice spokesper­son Cindy Bay­ers says the car’s win­dow was open slightly, which al­lowed of­fi­cers to open the door and let the dogs out.

The owner re­turned at 1:30 p.m., and po­lice handed out two $697.50 fines for leav­ing the dogs in an unat­tended ve­hi­cle in po­ten­tially dis­tress­ful con­di­tions, and a third ticket for $352.50 for hav­ing an un­li­censed dog.
