The policemen gave the dog some food and water after they rescued it
A dog was found in the back of a van in Újpest on 3 July. The animal was tied down, it had no water, and it was 51°C inside the vehicle.
According to Origo, the Újpest Animal and Nature Protection Patrol Service notified the police on July 3 that they had found a dog in District IV inside a vehicle left unattended in a parking lot. The animal was tied in the back of the van and got the rope twisted on itself. The animal had no water and could not reach its food because of the rope.
The rescuers used the thermal camera to check the interior temperature of the van. They measured 51°C.
When the policemen arrived, they immediately rescued the dog, gave it water, and checked the animal’s chip.
According to the chip, the owner of the dog did not match the owner of the vehicle. When the owner of the van was questioned, he admitted that he got the dog from his friend, and because there is no one to take care of the animal, he had been leaving the dog in the car while he was working.
According to Police.hu, the 67-year-old Vilmos B. Ferenc was interrogated as a suspect of animal abuse and is currently defending himself freely.
The dog was fine and was taken to a shelter by the Animal Rescue League.
