Dog Dies In Car While Owner Shops 13-Hours in Walmart

A 49-year old woman from Crestview, Florida, was arrested on Monday and charged with one count of misdemeanor cruelty to animals after leaving her dog in the car in the Walmart parking lot.

Cassaundra Rasmussen left her dog, Waldo, in the car, with the drivers side window slightly cracked when she parked at her local Walmart store.

Another shopper discovered the dog around 11am on Friday. By the time help arrived, Waldo had already died from heat exhaustion. There was no food or water left in the car with him and temperatures outside soared.

When police confronted Rasmussen, she had been shopping inside Walmart for 13 hours.

She told police she simply forgot he was in the car. She is currently in custody of Okaloosa County Jail.
