Pet Dog Dies From Suffocation In Locked Car While Owners Tour Taj Mahal

Pets are often considered part of the family and are looked after with the same care and affection as the “human” family members. But sadly, this pet dog from Haryana met its untimely demise when its owners chose the Taj Mahal in Agra over the helpless pooch.

The dog met its tragic end when the owners, hailing from Haryana, left it confined in a car for several hours. Meanwhile, they were visiting the renowned Taj Mahal in Agra.

Regrettably, the canine succumbed to extreme heat, inadequate ventilation, and the absence of water. The distressed animal was discovered inside the parked vehicle at Westgate Parking Taj.

An alarming video depicting the incident has emerged online, capturing a passerby’s footage of the lifeless pet dog lying in the footwell of the car. The graphic clip quickly caught the attention of police authorities.

This prompted them to intervene and condemn the irresponsible conduct. The Uttar Pradesh Police swiftly responded by urging the Agra police to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.

A First Information Report (FIR) was filed against Ajay Kumar, a resident of Hisar district in Haryana, under the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals Act. The complaint was lodged by Gajju Pradhan, a parking contractor.

He also reported that pets are prohibited within the premises of the Taj Mahal. Pradhan stated that around 12 pm, four individuals, including two women, parked their car and left the dog inside.

The dog was left alone and chained with a rear window partially open.

As much as we want this to not happen, this is not the first time a helpless animal has lost its life due to a human being.

In the later days of June, a doctor from Amritsar left his two dogs at home while he went abroad with his family. The canines were left without any food or water for their survival.

The incident was brought to the attention of an NGO by a resident of Ranjit Avenue. In response to the report, members of the organization quickly arrived at the scene to assess the situation.

The Amritsar police then booked the owner under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
