Dog Locked in Hot Vehicle Dies, Owner, a Vet, Arrested

Veterinary surgeon Douglas Huber was booked into Riverside County Jail in the City of Indio.

An aging German Shepherd left in a locked vehicle died Saturday, apparently from heat exhaustion, and his owner, a veterinary surgeon, was arrested.

The dog's owner, Douglas James Huber, 51, of Rancho Mirage, was arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty.

Sheriff's deputies were called to 42065 Washington St. Saturday morning to investigate the report of a dog left in a locked vehicle with no food or water, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Radek Horkel wrote in a news release.

Unable to find the 8-year-old dog's owner, a deputy broke a window to get to the animal; it died at the scene, Horkel said.

Huber, whose office is at the location where the vehicle with the dog inside was parked, was cited and released on bond for $2,500 and ordered to appear in court Oct. 10.

ONE OF TWO No no no no no no no nooooooooooooooooooooooo Papa Rich - you're not even close! If that is ALL you can do, attach someone, heaven help us. Ad hominem attacks are for the lazy, or ignorant, or misinformed or just down right inconsiderate. Now let's see how INTELLIGENT you are. You have above (5) of (5) posts above that I gave, and I don't see you joining issue on any of them. Is because YOU SIMPLY DON'T HAVE THE CAPACITY OR WHAT? ANYONE can be a cynic? Anyone can issue a put down. What does that prove? What have you proven? What have you shown of which you are capable? Did you READ all the links above offered by HIGHLY INTELLIGENT, well educated, sincere people? Are you even capable of writing even just one article similar to the above? Even one paragraph? So prove it. STAY ON POINT, STAY ON ISSUE. Take one of the links above and rebut it. For example, take IS AMERICA FREE? See video here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL069E6023534343F2 Study the video and REBUT it word for word, scene for scene, idea for idea. Then I"ll be impressed. But unless or until you do that, one can not even remotely consider that you can hob knob with thinkers and doers. Support Amend28: National Referendum and Recall.

I feel so bad for This happening, the poor dog, BUT I must say, this Dr is a great Dr, he is the one that is my Dogs Vet, and I can not say enough for his caring and knowledge of the needs for dogs... I do not know why he forgot his dog in the car, and I know he will suffer living with the death of his dog, each day of his life . I will still when needed, take my Heidi to him.. My German Shepherd. as I know in his heart he would never knowingly do such a thing... a terrible tragedy.. Jeanne in 29
