Texas Man Charged With Leaving Puppy In Hot Car

MANOR (1080 KRLD) – Manor police released dashcam footage of officers freeing an 8-week-old puppy from a hot car in a Walmart parking lot over the weekend.

Manor police chief Ryan Phipps says someone saw a puppy in a hot car on Saturday and called police.

Phipps says the temperature outside was 99 degrees and the heat index was 109 degrees. He says an officer used a tire iron to get through the sunroof and unlock the car.

The Mexican wolf-German shepard mix that goes by the name Annabelle, had fleas and lesions on her.  She’s now being treated.

Police arrested 20-year-old Chandler Bullen when he returned to the vehicle. He told officers he did not leave the car running because he did not want to waste gas.

He’s charged with a Class A Misdemeanor Cruelty Non-Live Stock Animals.

  1. he obviously does not watch the news or pay attention to media of any sort. otherwise, he would have known this is a bad thing. poor guy. maybe he just doesn’t know how to read. maybe they should give him a heads up about kids, heat and cars too before he has any.
