Just think of the decision by people from Rochefort to leave three pets locked in a car on a carpark in Saturday's intense heat.
The visitors left their vehicle with the three dogs on a Bruges car park for the entire afternoon. In all the poor creatures were stuck in the car for nearly six hours in intense heat. It was only worried passers-by who eventually alerted the police to the atrocious conditions the pets' owners had inflicted on the animals. Bruges police were quick to act smashing the car’s windows to free the pets. One animal had already succumbed to heat exhaustion. The two remaining animals were taken to the vets where a second dog soon died.
