An additional count of 597.7(a), a misdemeanor, was filed in which the defendant is charged did willfully and unlawfully leave and confine an animal, his canine Xander, in an unattended motor vehicle under conditions that endangered the health and wellbeing of the animal due to heat, lack of adequate ventilation, and lack of food and water, and under circumstances that could reasonably be expected to cause suffering, disability and death to the animal.
