You’ll Be Astounded That This Woman Got Her Dog Back After She Duct Taped It’s Muzzle (Video)

Dog duct tape muzzle

Can you believe that a woman posted pictures of her poor dog with a duct tape muzzle. Needless to say animal cruelty charges were brought against her.

Could There be 2 Sides to this Story?

Reactions to the judgment have been mixed, with some expressing outrage at the lack of punishment, some surprised the case was prosecuted at all, and others feeling that the decision is a sign that authorities are taking crimes against animals more seriously.

In response to the instant backlash, Lemansky posted this follow-up later the same day:

Don’t panic everyone it was only for a minute but [the dog] hasn’t barked since… POINT MADE!!!

 

Allowed to Keep the Dog

Although police tracked the woman to her home, she was charged with on count of Class 1 Misdemeanor Cruelty to Animals (which could mean a fine and 150 days of jail time). However, the dog was not removed from the home.

Cary Police Captain Randall Rhyne says:

Taping the dog’s muzzle shut was a terrible decision on Ms. Lemansky’s part, and charging her with animal cruelty under North Carolina law was the right thing to do. At the same time, it’s important to also note that our animal control officers who physically examined both Brown and her littermate found the dogs to be very well cared for, which is why we did not and could not remove them from the owner.
