    Florida Woman posts photo of her dog with mouth duct-taped shut, sparking Internet outrage and a police investigation
    A woman is drawing the wrath of Facebook for duct taping her dog's mouth shut and proudly displaying the photo. Katie Brown of South Daytona, Florida, posted a photo of her chocolate Labrador with silver duct tape taped all around her muzzle on Friday, with the caption 'This is what happens when you dont (sic) shut up!!!'

    The photo has since been shared over 45,000 times in 14 hours, and despite plenty of criticism, she refuses to take the photo down, and in fact, defended her actions in the thread. When one friend begged her to reassure people that she did not actually tape the pup's mouth, she wrote, 'I cant lie i did it for sixty seconds. It was time out and no more barking.' Other Facebook users threatened to report her to the police. Despite the criticism, Brown defiantly kept the photo up.

    She then followed up with another post, saying, 'Dont panic everyone it was only for a minute but hasn't barked since... POINT MADE!!!' South Daytona Police Department Telecommunications Supervisor Mimi Perez told the Daily Mail that it has received an onslaught of calls about Brown's dog 'from 44 states, three provinces, and as far away as Australia.'

    Police are currently looking for Brown for questioning but have been unable to find her at the addresses they have listed for her. In October, Kimberly Ann Howell of Salisbury, North Carolina, was charged with animal abuse after posting a photo of her duct-taped dog on Facebook and captioned it 'hah hah.' Police allowed the dog to stay with Howell because there were no signs of injury, and she claimed she only kept the tape on long enough to take a photo
