Animal cruelty is a criminal offense, and a person can be criminally prosecuted for cruelty to animals. This is an especially relevant issue in the heat of the summer. With each day temperatures rise, and making the mistake, or choice, of leaving your pet in your vehicle can be fatal. It is by law illegal to treat an animal cruelly.
