Sebastian man left dog in hot car because it ‘was old and going to die anyway’

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.

    THIS old F*CK looks like HE’S “lived too long”, himself: I have a hot oven, just waiting to plant him in, to DIE AN AGONIZING DEATH!

    Thank you to the compassionate people who tried to save the dog’s life. What a horrible death and a horrible man.

      Chances are the dog didn’t live a loved and pampered life before that horrible day either. RIP sweet pup. I’m sorry for your suffering.

    Put this scum in a hot car and leave him there to rot.Basically same treatment he gave his dog. Besides, this cretin looks old too so the same treatment to him would be the right one.

    You f****** old bastard!!! You look like the type of scum who’d cook your dog to death! Someone needs to lock you in your car for 3 hours and leave you there while you’re dressed in wool from head to toe, including a hat, boots, socks, AND coat! That’s pretty much what you did to your helpless dog, who, by age, was probably younger than you, you filthy old *****!

    *** Sorry for the language, but this vile old scumbag needs to be locked in his car and left. PERIOD. So, so angry that any scumbag like this could be callous enough to cook his dog alive and not give a damn. ***

    I agree 150% with all the comments here! This old, ugly, depraved drunk should suffer a very painful punishment. Chain him to a red-ant hill in the middle of the Mojave Desert.

    Harold Krages is nothing more than a drunken old bastard who should be waterboarded on a daily basis – he’s old, lets just dump his scummy old butt in a locked car and leave him to roast and rot – he’s going to die anyway, so screw him. It’s just too bad it is illegal to kill people, he is one that deserves a long suffering painful death which I would be glad to provide.

    Drunken old POS needs to be left in a hot car himself, after all He is “old and gonna die anyway”, I might add the sooner the better for this worthless piece of humanity!
