GEORGETOWN, Ky. — Police in Kentucky say 12 chickens were left in a hot car while their owners went shopping at Walmart.
One of the chickens died and the others were taken to a shelter after someone reported they'd been left in the car for about 30 minutes, according to WKYT-TV in Lexington.
Officers in Georgetown, where it happened, say the windows were left open just a crack.
The National Weather Service says the high temperature Wednesday in nearby Lexington was 94 degrees.
Georgetown Police say any charges against the owners will be up to Animal Control.
