A Florida woman sparked controversy after posting a photo to Facebook of a dog with its mouth duct-taped shut.
Katie Brown, of South Daytona, shared the photo alongside the caption: “This is what happens when you don’t shut up!!!” The post quickly began to go viral, and was shared more than 45,000 times, Daily Mail reported.
According to Daily Mail, one Facebook friend urged Brown to reassure others that she didn’t use the tape, to which she responded: ”I can't lie I did it for  seconds. It was time out and no more barking.”
“Dont panic everyone it was only for a minute but hasn't barked since ... POINT MADE!!!” a follow-up post read.
South Daytona police are currently investigating the incident, as well as South Daytona Animal Control, reported WFTV.
