Man deliberately left his dog inside a hot car in Cary, police say

Police charged a man Tuesday with leaving a dog in a hot car in Cary.

According to an arrest warrant from the Cary Police Department, Paul Fisher III, 55, intentionally put a dog in a hot car and left it inside.

This is the second person accused of leaving a dog in a hot car in Wake County since Saturday. On Saturday, Apex police accused a dog breeder of leaving seven French bulldog puppies inside a covered tub inside a hot car.

One of the puppies was euthanized, but the remaining six are recovering at the Wake County Animal Center.

Authorities charged Fisher with animal cruelty and possession of a stolen license plate.
