    On Saturday, April 27, Moab City police responded to two reports of dogs left inside cars. In one case, police were unable to contact the car’s owner and were considering breaking a window to get the dog out before the owner returned.

    Police who responded to Motel 6 on one of the reports said they measured the temperature inside the car to be 93. Police, with the help of the motel staff, were able to contact the owner of the vehicle, who was issued a formal warning.

    In the other case, police said they measured the temperature inside the car to be 102. After being unable to contact the owner, an officer asked for assistance to possibly break a window to get the dog out. Soon after making this call, the owner arrived, police explained the serious nature of the situation and issued a formal warning.
