Golfing Owner's Hot Car Kills Colorado Dog

Additionally, the Jefferson County Court judge sentenced Michael Reynolds to two years of probation and a ban on dog ownership.

Reynolds was also forced to attend a dog ownership class and pay fines.

Reynolds and Keef drove to Foothills Golf Course on July 4, 2023, according to court filings.

KDVR News reported 80 degrees. Reynolds locked Keef in the car with all windows up for over four hours, despite the deadly heat.

The dog's distress call scared witnesses who contacted 911 after seeing Keef in Reynolds's car.

Strangely, another pedestrian said Keef's panting made the window hazy.

One bystander used a golf club to crack the car glass and liberate the frightened dog.
