Raccoon Rescued From Hot Car

Updated: Tuesday, July 8 2014, 03:55 PM CDT

Police rescued a "pet" raccoon from a hot car in Downtown Austin Tuesday morning -- and the owner of the vehicle is expected to be charged with animal cruelty.

It happened around 11 a.m. in the 500 block of West 11th Street, right across the street from the Travis County Courthouse complex.

Police say it not legal to have a pet raccoon -- and it also not legal to have an animal in a hot car by itself.

The raccoon -- named Rocky -- is expected to be OK.
