According to an arrest report received last week, 62-year-old Yean Sia was arrested at the same location on July 22, after three dogs were left in the car while shopping at Wal-Mart.
She was booked at the Clark County Detention Center with three counts of intentional malicious torture of animals.
A security guard named William Hanson reportedly was welcomed by a Red Bull employee named Jason Brown who noticed that the dog in the car appeared to be suffering, around 9:30 am on July 22. Called the police.
Guards also observed that the dog was over-panting and had a hanging tongue. This is what the dog does when he is trying to cool himself.
Police officers had to carry the pug into their car because the dog couldn’t stand. Pugs named Zachary (13 years old) and Howie (10 years old) were taken to a veterinary clinic. In the hospital, Zachary began to have seizures as a result of heat stroke and was euthanized.
A German shepherd named Donna, 4 years old, did not require medical intervention.
The veterinary clinic acknowledged the swift action of all those involved in the rescue of dogs before they were victims of the heat.
It was 96 degrees at the time of the incident.
