Woman Puts Puppy in Bag, Posts Facebook Photo, Gets Arrested

by at .  Updated at . Comments

An Albuquerque, N.M., woman put her puppy in a Ziploc bag and held it up for the camera, in an attempt to show Facebook friends how small the dog is.

We know, we can't believe it either ... that someone would really do that, that she'd be stupid enough to post it online, or that this person has any friends.

Mary Snell, 44, and her son, Britton James Engel, 21, were both arrested in Bernalillo County last week once a tipster alerted police to the photo, CNN reports.

Engel allegedly took the photo of Snell holding up the the eight-week-old Chihuahua, named Baby, in the bag, which was just big enough to envelop it.

She later told reporters that she realized this stunt was wrong, but, well, she "couldn't get the little guy to hold still any other way," according to KRQE-TV.

Deputies said that the position of the poor puppy - face and nose pressed up against the sides of the bag - could have easily deprived it of oxygen.

Both Engel and Snell were charged with felony animal cruelty. Baby is doing fine and, thank goodness, now lives with another family member.

You can't be that stupid, so you must just be evil. You should not be around animals because they give us such joy if you're mature enough to receive it. Obviously you are too ignorant. Hope the same happens to you sometime.
