In Ashtabula, Ohio, three area residents face animal cruelty charges on Thursday, after police say they forced a dog to drink alcohol and then posted the photo of the drunk puppy on their Facebook page. According to Humans Loving Animals, police arrived at a home located on the 300 block of West 53rd Street on Monday afternoon after numerous calls from outraged citizens, who viewed the disturbing photo on social media, and notified authorities.
Charged with a first degree misdemeanor for cruelty to a companion animal, Jennifer Schwab, 36, Tanna J. Howser, 32, and Farrell Weger, 39, allegedly fed the three-month-old puppy a mixture of vodka and Kahlua. When the drunk puppy passed out on the floor, the trio took her picture and posted:
