A Cedar Rapids, Iowa, woman has been charged with cruel treatment to animals after a dog died in her car while she was at Woodfield Shopping Center in Schaumburg. Ya Lan Lee, 29, of the 2100 block of 25th St., Cedar Rapids, was arrested around 3:30 p.m. Monday at an animal hospital in the 1300 block of north Roselle Road in Schaumburg. Reports said she and her husband left their 4-year-old female pug dog in their car while they ate at Woodfield. The dog's body temperature was higher than the thermometer range of 107.4 degrees, reports said. Lee's court date is Sept. 24.
