New York: A Florida-based woman faces a police investigation after she posted a photo of her dog with his mouth taped shut on Facebook that sparked fury from users.
The post, that was shared over 200,000 times this weekend, sparked an outcry from animal lovers, criticising Katie Brown who posted the image.
Soon, local police were inundated with calls and messages showing outrage and concern.
Brown posted a photograph of the dog that looks like a chocolate Labrador with duct tape wrapped around its mouth with a message: “This is what happens when you don’t (sic) shut up!!!” A minute later, she posted, “Don’t panic everyone it was only for a minute, but hasn’t barked since... POINT MADE!!! (sic)”
Outraged, people from as far as Australia and Canada flooded the Connecticut police with calls.
