New York Man Faces Animal Cruelty Charges After He Traps 3 Dogs In Boiling Hot Car 

This is the sort of cruel thing that makes me really question society, i hope to spread awareness through the stories i share and together we can all make a change with how animals are treated. 

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. —A New York man is facing animal cruelty charges after he left three dogs inside a sweltering car while he went shopping at the Volusia Mall, authorities said.

Edgar Marcial, 27, is facing three counts of animal cruelty after the dogs were pulled from a vehicle that had an internal temperature of 103 degrees.

Authorities said a store clerk noticed the animals locked in a car about noon Wednesday with the rear windows cracked just an inch.

The clerk said he waited 20 minutes for the owner to return before he called police.

Animal Control officials said the dogs were in distress and a wrecking service was called to open the car.

Officials said one of the dogs appeared unconscious and a second dog couldn’t stand on its own.

Marcial returned to the car about 1:30 p.m. and was arrested. Police said he had been in the mall shopping for clothes.
