Brookfield police sprang into action Friday when they received a report of a dog locked in a vehicle.
Police were notified by a business employee that someone locked their dog inside a vehicle. According to police outside it was 80 degrees, and in the car it was 114 degrees, even with the windows cracked.
Officers rescued the dog. Police reminded residents that even as we move into September it is still warm and pets are better off at home than in a hot vehicle.
