The Norfolk OPP were busy responding to calls about dogs on Tuesday.
First, a 61-year-old Straffordville woman was charged after she left a dog unattended in a hot vehicle.
The incident took place Tuesday afternoon after someone spotted the animal inside of a car for an extended period at Walmart in Simcoe.
Police located the vehicle and were able to unlock the door to allow air flow and to check on the wellbeing of the animal who initially appeared to be in distress.
The owner of the vehicle was subsequently paged inside the store and returned to their vehicle.
She was charged with leaving an animal unattended in a motor vehicle, contrary to Norfolk County Care and Control of Animals By-Law 2014-46.
Then police called in after someone refused to pick up their dog’s feces.
On Tuesday afternoon, a resident spotted a woman walking her Husky in Memorial Park when the dog stopped to do its business and the woman left without picking up the excrement.
A short time after that the resident spotted a man walking the same breed of dog and offered the man a bag to clean up the waste.
The unknown male then threatened the victim and walked away in an unknown direction.
The suspect was described to police as a male with dark coloured hair.
