BEAVER COUNTY, Penn. — A Pennsylvania couple is facing charges after they let their 10-year-old daughter travel down the highway in the back of their truck — in a dog cage.
The girl’s parents told CBS Pittsburgh that she wanted to be back there with her dog so it wouldn’t be scared.
But concerned drivers took immediate action and called police.
The girl’s mom said since that’s where her daughter plays with the dogs at home, she didn’t think “it was a big deal.”
Now, the couple has to visit their daughter at her grandma’s house, where she has been temporarily placed.
A neighbor told CBS Pittsburgh the girl’s parents are “good people” who made a “bad decision.”
