Rothbury woman faces animal neglect charge after dog dies in hot car.

ROTHBURY — A 35-year-old Rothbury woman was charged with animal neglect causing death in connection to the death of a German Shepard that died after being left in a hot car for more than three hours, according to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

Multiple 911 calls were made regarding the dog being left in a vehicle Sunday, July 10, at the Rothbury Wesco convenience store, said Sheriff Mast.

The suspect, who was interviewed by police, said she left the dog in her vehicle so she could attend church and apparently kept the dog in the vehicle for over three hours. The temperature at the time of the incident was 84 degrees.

Police also investigated an earlier disturbance at Wesco involving a person who was with the suspect.
