The incident happened this past Tuesday. Delta police spokesperson Cris Leykauf said police received a call about a dog left in the car in a mall parking lot.

When the police tracked down the owner of the car, they found out the woman had done this before.

Leykauf is reminding the public that children and pets can overheat easily when left in a hot car. She said this shouldn’t be new information.

BCSPCA has also reminded people of the consequences from leaving your pet behind.
