“I bet she didn’t go for 19 hours without food or water whilst in the hotel. Stupid bxxxh should be banned from owning any further animals; if that’s how little she thinks of them!”

A 62-year-old woman from Virginia was arrested after police discovered two dogs which had been locked inside of her vehicle for 19 excruciating hours, reported Monday’s Baltimore Sun.

On Saturday, authorities were alerted to the presence of two dogs who were locked inside of Sharon Mulcahy‘s Ford Fusion, which was parked outside of a Best Western in a Baltimore, Md., suburb.

One of the dogs, a six-year-old poodle named “Missy,” was already dead by the time that the car was opened. The other dog, a 10-year-old poodle named “Bear,” was still alive and hiding beneath the steering column.

Temperatures on Saturday were hovering in the mid-90’s and the interior of the car was described as “scalding.” Mulcahy had left a window slightly cracked, but the outside temperatures were far too hot for the opening to be of any benefit.

According to the police report, Mulcahy had checked into the hotel around 8 p.m. on Friday, leaving her small dogs locked inside of the vehicle without any food or water.

Hotel employees noticed the dogs on Saturday afternoon and contacted the authorities.

Mulcahy was arrested and is facing six counts of animal cruelty and two counts of restraining a dog without shelter or food and water.

The surviving dog was taken to BARCS for care.
