A dog has reportedly passed away after being left in a car by itself.

According to scanner reports posted by Howie Allan, a woman in Langford left her dog in a hot vehicle and returned to find him dead.

She was allegedly intoxicated when she discovered her dog and attempted to perform CPR to try and revive him.

Police were called to the scene near Feel Good Yoga studio on Veterans Memorial Parkway, and have reportedly taken the woman into custody. The SPCA has been called in as well.

Victoria Buzz has reached out to West Shore RCMP and the SPCA for comment.

Earlier today, Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Greater Victoria, as an “extended stretch of very warm weather” is currently hitting BC’s south coast.

According to the statement, temperatures will reach the mid-to-high twenties near the water and low-to-mid thirties inland.

More to come.
