Pierre Boucher, 68, of Ontario left the dog panting in the unventilated sedan for at least an hour, police said.
The dog’s nose was warm and wet to the touch, an officer said. Officers found the dog in the back seat of the sedan at about 4:20 p.m., a report states. It didn’t have water and the window was only cracked about an inch.
At 5:10 p.m. Boucher returned from the beach with a small cooler of soft drinks. It was more than 80 degrees outside, the officer noted.
Boucher was arrested on a charge of animal confinement without food and water. He was released from the Palm Beach County Jail on a $500 bond, records show.
