Police are looking for this woman who duct-taped her dog’s mouth shut

There’s a special place in hell for people who abuse their dogs, but not all animal abusers see themselves as such.

There’s a special place in hell for people who abuse their dogs, but not all animal abusers see themselves as such.

This is certainly true of Katie Brown of South Daytona, Florida, who posted a picture to Facebook of her dog’s mouth taped shut because the dog wouldn’t stop barking. (Of course it’s Florida. It’s always Florida. Why does Florida have to make it so easy?) “This is what happens when you dont [sic] shut up!” she wrote. Huh.

The internet’s response has been swift. The day after she posted the photo, the South Daytona Police Department has received calls from all over the country and all over the globe to report the abuse — of which there is photographic evidence. This woman is exactly as intelligent as her grammar and spelling would indicate.

According to the Daily Mail, the police department so far has been unable to locate the woman at the addresses listed for her. It’s possible she’s with her son, or even up in Connecticut.

In her spare time, Brown enjoys posting on Facebook about how hard her life is, how much she hates assholes, how great alcohol is, and how important her dogs are to her. It’s possible she’s an animal lover who went too far with the tough love because she was so annoyed at her dog’s barking (which is sort of what dogs do, but whatever). A muzzle for a dog is one thing, but duct tape can really damage a dog physically and emotionally.

As one of the commenters pointed out, there are plenty of people out there who could give the dog a loving home if she’s not able to. As of this time, Brown still hasn’t taken the photo down from Facebook.

    Took one look at her and could tell she’s an alcoholic, and sure enough she’s posting on line how great booze is ! Well alrighty then,I guess being drunk gives someone an excuse to abuse an animal? It does not, and I hope they nail her ass for animal cruelty. She’s neither cute not funny; she’s sick.

    60 seconds or 60 minutes – it’s irrelevant. It’s abuse and I hope they throw the book at her.

    Agree. And another woman was reported today for doing the same thing…Sue Greenstein of Providence, Rhode Island. Her photo is with the article, and she too posted what she did to her dog on FB. I’m certain that much animal abuse goes unreported, unless those who do it are brazen or stupid enough to brag about it.

    She’s a dead beat looser seeking attention bye anyone on social media who will listen . I find it baffling how such a looser and drunk has managed to have children let alone animals ! Makes me question her stability with anything or anyone that relies on her caring for them .

    Katie I hope you go to jail and are left in general population for the rest of the girls in there make you scream and cry , hopefully someone has duck tape ! Your nothing more then a hanious bitch !

    A Book? They need to let loose a pack of wild dogs while fenced in with no exit!
