FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Police in Frederick have ticketed a South Carolina woman for allegedly leaving her dog in a hot car while she visited a tanning salon.

Police issued the ticket Wednesday evening to Robin Pepper, 26, of Anderson, S.C. She was cited for endangering the dog’s health, safety and welfare.

Police say they responded to a 911 call shortly after 7:30 p.m. and found a white poodle locked in a Honda Civic with all the windows closed. They say the temperature inside the car was 152 degrees.

The Frederick County Animal Control director says Pepper probably won’t be charged with animal cruelty because the dog apparently wasn’t hurt.
