New London police have arrested a Massachusetts resident who is accused of leaving two dogs in a hot car without water. They said the temperature inside the car reached 107 degrees.
Police responded to the parking lot of Ocean Beach Park Tuesday after someone called them right before 5 p.m. and said two small dogs has been left in an unoccupied car.
Officers who went to the park found an unlocked vehicle with the windows barely open and saw two small dogs in a plastic cage without water, police said.
The dogs were removed from the vehicle and given water.
Officers found the owner, 38-year-old Nicholes Seguin, of Palmer, Massachusetts, around 5:40 p.m. and learned that Sequin had arrived at the park around 3:16 p.m., according to a news release from police.
Seguin was issued a summons for cruelty to animals and unvaccinated animals.
The animal control officer took the dogs.
