Outrage: Woman Duct Tapes Dog`s Mouth Shut, Posts Pic on Facebook
"A 25-year-old North Carolina woman has been charged with cruelty to animals after authorities said she duct taped her dog`s mouth shut to prevent it from barking.
She then took photographs and posted them to Facebook with the caption: Ha Ha.
Kimberly Ann Howell has been freed on $3,000 bond. Someone saw the pictures and reported them to the Rowan County Sheriff`s Office. Howell told authorities she removed the tape immediately after posting the pictures. The pictures have been removed from her Facebook page."

I would like to commend the person who saw the photographs of the abused dog on Facebook, and contacted law enforcement. Whenever we see evidence of animals being abused on social media or in real life we should contact the authorities.
Howell claims she removed the tape immediately after posting the pictures, and that it was all a joke. Even if what she is saying is true, only a deviant would think that a photograph of a dog`s mouth duct taped is humorous. Not to mention that her disgusting photograph may have inspired other sick minds to abuse their dogs.
Howell should be convicted of animal cruelty, and her dog should be taken away from her, and put up for adoption.
