From the Wareham Department of Natural Resources:

On the evening of Aug 5, 2018, an officer of the Wareham Natural Resources Department responded to a reported vehicle with a dog left in it. Upon arrival a dog was observed in a vehicle with a single rear window open approximately two inches. 

The owner of the animal along with their family made the decision to leave the dog in the vehicle while the family had dinner at a local eatery. This is unacceptable due to the heat issue and leaving a dog in a vehicle is not acceptable, you will receive the maximum citation allowed by law.

During the investigation the outside temperature was 86 degrees fahrenheit outside at the time of the call and the only window “open” is the one shown.
