Some people just aren’t fit to be parents. To get a better understanding of what we mean, take a look at this startling report.

According to ABC News, police confirmed that a Tulsa, Oklahoma man was arrested after police found his 18-month-old daughter locked in a metal dog cage, his naked 4-year old daughter outside on a cold afternoon and him asleep in a drug or alcohol “induced stupor.”

More details below:

“A neighbor called police after finding the older child outside the family’s home and getting no response when he knocked on the door around 4 p.m. Sunday, as temperatures dropped to the low 40s. Officers’ knocks also went unanswered, “then one of the officers looked inside and saw a small child in a dog cage,” Tulsa police spokesman Officer Leland Ashley said.

After forcing their way inside, police discovered the toddler was covered in feces and that a 3-year-old child was asleep in another room. Their father was found asleep on a bed, “in an alcohol- or narcotics-induced stupor,” Ashley said.”

The three children were placed into the custody of the Department of Human Services, with the father being held in the Tulsa County jail on $50,000 bond after being arrested on a child neglect complaint.
