In Sebastian, Florida, a 64-year-old man was arrested on Thursday and charged with leaving his dog in a hot car for three hours as outside temperatures soared to 102 degrees.
According to the TCPalm, police found Harold Krages lying on the floor outside of the bar Earl’s Hideaway after he was kicked out when patrons learned he had left his dog in the car. As he was being escorted out of the bar, Krages asked about his dog. When patrons questioned him about the dog and where it was, Krages responded telling everyone, the dog was “old and going to die anyway.”
The dog was located and carried into the restroom where there was air conditioning. The dog died shortly after.
Animal Control determined the temperature inside of the vehicle was 93.2 degrees. Thursday marked the first day of summer. Never leaving pets or children in hot cars.
