Two charged with animal abuse

Two people were arrested on animal cruelty charges after leaving their dog

in a parked car at Eastview Mall.

The Ontario County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called to the mall

after people reported a dog in distress without water or ventilation. After 

investigating, they charged Annette Irwin and Alberto Garcia Sanchez with 

confinement of an animal in a vehicle. The sheriff's office said the Fishers 

Fire Department measured the internal temperature of the vehicle at 137 


Both were arraigned in Victor Town Court and the dog turned over to the

Ontario County Humane Society. Irwin and Sanchez were sent to the 

Ontario County Jail pending bail.
