SEATTLE - A Seattle man accused of leaving his dog in a car on a hot day, causing the animal to die of heatstroke, faced a judge on Monday.

Oliver Lundt entered a plea of not guilty to a felony charge of animal cruelty.

Prosecutors say Lundt left the dog alone in the car for almost four hours on a day when temperatures reached 77 degrees.

The dog had an internal temperature of 107 by the time help arrived and had to be euthanized.
