BAKERSFIELD - A dog was removed from a locked vehicle on Chester Avenue near California Avenue Friday morning.
The temperature was expected to reach 99 degrees Friday.
Police say they are still searching for the person who left the black dog alone inside the truck for more than a day.
A good Samaritan named James noticed the dog in distress this morning. He said the truck had been in the same spot since yesterday, which was also the hottest day of the week.
Animal Control was able to pull the dog out of the car and take it to their facility to be looked at by a veterinarian.
According to James and his sister Carolyn, the dog immediately urinated and vomited as soon as he was rescued.
Police say the owner of the truck could face felony charges.
