Dog Lost at Six Flags Found and Returned to OwnerPublished September 16, 2011
For those who have been following the curious case of the dog who was locked in a car at Six Flags Magic Mountain, rescued from the car and then lost by staff officials, there is a new update. And that update is that the dog, Malibu, has been found, and returned to its owner.
The Examiner cites a CBS report that Malibu's owner, Shalanon Brooks, tweeted that her dog had been found and was returned to her.
The fact that the dog was returned to Brooks, who made the executive decision to lock her dog in the car, has outraged many animal advocates.
Animal advocates say that Brooks should be brought up on charges of animal cruelty in accordance with California's law, which "prohibits leaving animals in an unattended car if...by doing so...you endanger the health or well-being of the animal." Soaring hot temperatures that lead to exhaustion, heat stroke and other conditions are deemed to be cruelty.
What do you think of the fact that Malibu was found? Moreover, do you think that Malibu should have been returned to her owner? Or should the dog be taken away and Brooks be brought up on animal cruelty charges?
