FORT MYERS, Fla.- A Fort Myers woman, who asked not to be identified, was shopping for office supplies when she noticed a Lee County Deputy's vehicle with emergency lights flashing. As she approached the car she saw three small dogs in the front seat jumping at the window and barking. She began taking photos of the car and realized all of the vehicles windows were closed. "There was no ventilation for those dogs.", she said. We took the photos to Lee County's domestic animal services and were reminded that animals should not be left in a car at anytime. Officials with the Lee County Sheriff's office say the deputy did nothing wrong by using his vehicle for personal reasons but added it was probably a poor choice to use the patrol car for picking up his pets.
