Emmerdale fans have complained on Twitter about the scenes which saw Meena shut Princess in a hot car, with some mentioning the RSPCA in their tweets.

In last night’s scenes (Thursday, June 11 2021) Andrea and Charles prepared to go away on a camping trip with Andrea’s daughter Millie and Millie’s dog Princess.

However when Andrea suggested they leave Princess with Charles’s son Ethan, Millie wasn’t happy and stormed off inside.

Princess was left outside alone and soon someone came along and lured Princess into the car, which was boiling hot due to the hot weather.

They then shut Princess inside and the poor dog couldn’t escape.

Soon David came along and saw Princess inside and opened the car. Charles rushed over and took Princess straight to the vets.

Paddy told Charles and Andrea that Princess had heat stroke.

Later it was revealed that it was David’s girlfriend, Meena, who trapped the dog in the car in an attempt to stop Charles and Andrea going on their trip.

However viewers were not impressed with the scenes and mentioned the RSPCA in their tweets as they complained about the soap showing animal abuse.

Will anyone find out she was the one who hurt Princess?
