A dog suffered an agonizing death inside of a parked car while his owner gambled inside of a Opelousas, Louisiana, casino. As reported by KSLA News, 52-year-old Byron Badeaux went into the Evangeline Downs Casino early Thursday and forgot about the dog that he had left inside of his parked vehicle.

When Badeaux went back to his car around noon, he discovered that his dog had died. Opelousas police officers were called out to the casino parking lot and Badeaux was arrested. He was booked into the St. Landry Parish Jail on a charge of aggravated animal cruelty.

During the warm summer months it is safest to leave dogs at home – even moderately warm days can turn a parked vehicle into a virtual oven. If you notice a dog locked inside of a parked vehicle on a warm day, please reach out to the local animal welfare agency and/or the police. Know the laws where you live – in many areas it is legal to break out a car window to save a distressed dog from dying of heat stroke.

    So why did he take his dog to a casino in the first place? I hope they throw the book at this POS. Rest in peace poor dog, you didn’t deserve this!
