As we all know the heat in Sydney over the past few days has been record-breaking, which makes this story even the more distressing.
Over the weekend Police were forced to smash through a car window to save a puppy trapped inside the vehicle.
It's estimated that the heat inside the car parked at Oran Park was a staggering 65C heat when it was first discovered.
The seven-week-old puppy was suffering from extreme heat stress when it was found on Saturday with the temperature outside around the 40C mark.
Macquarie Fields police received a 000 phone call in the late afternoon before breaking the window to rescue the pup.
The NSW Police Traffic and Highway Patrol Command Facebook page reports:
“Police provided the dog with fresh water and some air conditioned comfort to assist in the dog’s recovery,’’
Camden police are now investigating and are expected to start legal action under the Dog Act today.
The puppy is recovering.
