Three dogs dead after being locked in hot car with closed windows

A woman has been charged following the deaths of a trio of dogs she left in her vehicle.
Ann Garnett, 65, put the dogs in the car with no water, broken air-conditioning, and no open windows.

Emergency workers and witnesses tried to revive the dogs but they were all declared dead at Newport Animal Hospital in Jamestown, Rhode Island.

The dogs, which were found outside McQuades Market Place, were two black Labradors, aged four and seven months old, and a gray keeshond, four.

It is not known how long the dogs were in the car but police described it as an ‘extended period of time’.
Temperatures in the region were into the 90s on Sunday. Garnett has been charged with three counts of unnecessary cruelty to an animal and could face up to five years in prison and $1,000 fine for each count.

She has also been charged with three counts of confinement in a motor vehicle. She was released to appear in court at a later date.
