Man Faces Charges After Leaving Dogs in Hot Car
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida man faces charges after police say he left two dogs in his car without the engine running, causing them to die.
Port St. Lucie police say 52-year-old Carl Castilow parked his car in the lot at Keiser Golf College just before noon Thursday. A woman walking by the vehicle about an hour later spotted the shepherd mix and golden retriever. College staff arrived and helped the woman remove the dogs.
The dogs were given wet towels and ice packs, but the shepherd mix died at the scene from heat exhaustion. The retriever was taken to a nearby animal hospital but died sometime that night.
Castilow was arrested and charged with two animal cruelty counts. He was later released $7,500 bail. Jail records didn't say if he had an attorney.
