Owner ticketed for leaving dog in locked vehicle
LAFAYETTE — A Westmoreland woman is facing charges after law enforcers said she left her dog locked inside her vehicle at the Lafayette Apple Festival in Onondaga County.
State police said they were dispatched to the festival parking lot on Oct. 6 for reports that a dog had been locked inside a vehicle for nearly two hours.
Troopers said several attempts were made to contact the owner over the PA system without success.
Troopers eventually broke the car window to recover the dog, who was in good health.
The owner of the dog and vehicle was eventually located. Troopers said Dana M. Studer, 54, of Carmel Drive, Westmoreland, has been charged with one count of animal cruelty, a misdemeanor.
She was released on an appearance ticket to Town Court for Oct. 17.
