(Newser) – A New Zealand dad has lost his baby to child welfare authorities after he left the boy in his car for hours yesterday while he went to a bar to watch strippers. A passer-by spotted the tot dozing at 3 in the morning and called police. Leaving a child alone in a car at night is an "extreme form of neglect," said a child welfare official. Authorities are meeting with relatives to help plan the baby's future, reports AP.
