Man arrested after labradors die in hot car at Folly Farm

A man has been arrested after three dogs died after being left in a hot car at a Pembrokeshire tourist attraction.

The three labradors were found dead in the vehicle at the animal petting park Folly Farm, Kilgetty, by the owners.

The incident happened on Tuesday 14 August and a Dyfed-Powys Police spokesman said a 50-year-old man has been bailed.

Chris Ebsworth, managing director at Folly Farm, said the incident was "tragic".

The RSPCA said in a statement: "Officers attended and recovered the bodies of the three dogs.

"A 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing animal suffering/cruelty and has been bailed pending further enquiries."

Mr Ebsworth said: "This is a very tragic situation and serves as an important reminder as to why you should never leave dogs unattended in a car."

A Dyfed Powys Police spokesperson said a 50 year old man was arrested on suspicion of causing animal suffering and cruelty and has been bailed pending further inquiries.
