Dog Walker Accidentally Kills Six Pets

Never leave pets in a parked car.

Dog walker accidentally killed six pets after locking them in hot truck for 45 minutes... then lied and said they had been stolen.

Emma Paulsen sparked a week-long hunt for the dogs - Buddy, Teemo, Oscar, Mia, Molly and Salty.  She first claimed the dogs had been taken from her truck when she left for ten minutes to use a bathroom.  But later Paulsen confessed that the dogs had in face died after she locked them in her pickup for 45 minutes.

Paulsen now faces a fine of $75,000 and up to two years in prison. 

But the SPCA, which is leading the investigation, will recommend animal cruelty charges, according to officials. 

According to reports, Paulsen was walking the dogs on May 13th in a park in Brookswood, British Columbia.  After leaving the dogs in the parked truck, the animals died of heat exhaustion.  In an attempt to cover up her crime, Paulsen dumped the bodies in a nearby ditch and claimed the animals were stolen. 

One of the owners wrote on facebook...  "These dogs were our worlds and now we are all devastated and heartbroken.  I am not sure if we will ever truly mend from this.  The tears just won't stop.
