    Cold Spring Country Club in Belchertown, Massachusetts

    Police in Massachusetts are investigating the death of a dog that was left in a car in a country club parking lot on a day when temperatures soared into the 90s.

    Belchertown police tell WWLP-TV they responded to Cold Spring Country Club just after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

    The service dog belonged to a country club employee, who had left it in the car with the air conditioning running for about a half hour.

    Club manager Christopher Brunelle says the dog was routinely left in the unnamed employee's vehicle with the air conditioning running for short periods of time.
