Dog in hot vehicle: As crowd gathered, owner kept ‘shopping’

Dog left in car dies; police planning charges

Dog left in car dies; police planning charges

Stephanie Shae Thomas, 34, of Trussville, was arrested late Thursday night, according to Birmingham ABC affiliate ABC 33/40.

The dog died after spending about eight hours locked in a vehicle in the Trussville Walmart parking lot, the website reported.

An Alabama woman who police say left a dog in a hot auto for as long as seven hours was charged with felony animal cruelty, police said Friday.

Authorities say the animal was in the vehicle for as long as seven hours on July 4, when temperatures soared into the 90s.

At least one person attempts to open the auto before a police officer breaks a window and officers remove the animal from the vehicle. Video shot by a bystander shows officers unsuccessfully trying to revive the animal.

He along with Jaydev Unadkat, however, were overlooked for the Ireland T20Is and the ongoing T20I series against England. India's tour of England kick-started on July 3 with the first T20I match at Old Trafford cricket ground in Manchester.

"Just thinking about what she went through the last moments she was alive", Thomas said.

Court records aren't available to show whether Thomas has a lawyer who could speak on her behalf. They told her investigators would be in contact.

Police Lt. Phil Dillon says a woman parked the auto outside the store around 4 a.m., and the animal wasn't removed until about seven hours later.

The woman - Stephanie Shae Thomas, 34 - was paged several times by name over the store's loudspeaker.

He said surveillance video showed Thomas' Mercedes sedan arriving at the Walmart at 4 a.m. "They said, 'Your dog is dead.' I didn't know what time it was because I hadn't looked at my phone", Thomas said.
