JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) --
A Jacksonville woman has been charged with animal cruelty after a dog left in her vehicle died.
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office officials say 27-year-old Amanda
Foxwell left the dog inside her Chevy Cobalt with the windows
cracked about a quarter of an inch Friday. Authorities say the
woman had stopped by Jacksonville University to visit her mother.
According to an arrest report, the dog was unable to stand and
was panting when Foxwell returned to the car an hour and a half
later. She took the dog inside and tried to cool it down with
water, but the dog died.
She was charged with animal cruelty causing death and released
from the Jacksonville jail on Saturday.
The sheriff's report did not indicate the breed or other details
about the dog.
