SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Scottsdale police issued a citation for animal neglect to the owner of Harkins Theatres over the weekend after they say he left his dog in a hot car for more than an hour.

An officer cited Dan Harkins, 57, with animal neglect after police say he left his female dog named Tanga in a car in triple digit heat.

Scottsdale police received a call Saturday night at the Harkins Theater located at Scottsdale Road and Shea after someone spotted the Corgi in the front seat of a BMW.

“The way the dog was lying there, I thought it was either sick or dead,” said Donna Yuritic, who first spotted the unattened dog and notified police.
