A citizen recorded cell phone video that shows Memphis grandmother Leimome Cheeks opening the trunk of her Ford Explorer and letting a child out of dog kennel. Temperatures in the area reached about 35 degrees Celsius.

Neighbors said Cheeks just bought two German Shepherd puppies that she would put in the kennels in the back of her truck. They said their grandmother told them to sit in the kennels because there was no room in the trunk.

The woman is being charged with two counts of child endangerment, according to Cleveland 19.

"Many have inquired about a viral video from Saturday that shows two children being transported in pet kennels", the Memphis Police Department said.

Local 24 reporter, Annette Peagler went to Cheeks home and tried to get a comment from her family, but no one answered the door. I couldn't see her actually doing that. I only met her like once maybe twice. Neighbors are shocked. They say Leimome Cheeks is a very nice woman and they can't believe she did something like this.

Strangely enough, there is little information available on the relations between Cheeks and the children, aged 7 and 8-years-old. She is set to appear in court on Monday, the station reported.
