A drowned dog Facebook photo has led to the arrest of the animals owner.
The unnamed man tied his dog to a rock and then left him to drown in high-tide.
A dog walker found the poor pooch’s body in the sand at low tide and quickly snapped a photo which they placed on their own Facebook account.
The incident occurred in Huelva, Spain and the Facebook post led to tens of thousands of shares. Eventually a Facebook user recognized the dog and called police.
Police say the man drowned his dog after he couldn’t afford the vet fees to put him down humanely.
According to police:
“Instead he tied the dog to a rock on the beach and left there to drown when the tide came in. A suspect is facing animal cruelty and abuse charges.”
