BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

BowlingGreen Police are warning pet owners not to leave their pets inside hot cars. Ifyou're caught doing this, you could be looking at serious charges.

Thepolice are currently investigating two cases where dogs were left inside hotcars for extended amounts of time while their owners ran errands. The caseswere reported as animal cruelty.

AnimalControl Officer Thomas Sieving says many people don't realize how quicklytemperatures can rise inside a car. He says temperatures can rise to 120degrees inside a vehicle in as little as 10 minutes – causing a dog stuckinside to go into shock and possibly die.

Ifthat happens, the owner faces serious charges and even jail time.

"It'snot illegal to have a dog in the car, but if it gets to the condition where thedog is in trouble, then they could be charged with animal cruelty," Sievingsaid. "You don't want to be charged with animal cruelty. That will stick withyou for the rest of your life."

Theeasiest way to avoid those charges is to leave your pet at home when runningerrands. If you have to take them with you, make sure your windows are rolleddown so they can get plenty of fresh air.
