While dog barking can be annoying, taking measures like this woman did is inexcusable, disgusting, and for animal lovers everywhere, long term prison punishable. This woman is the prime example of such disgust and hopefully she will serve a long time in prison.
Her name is Claudia Tate, 72, and she was charged with two counts of animal cruelty. What did she do? She actually taped her dogs mouths shut. She apparently did this so they would not bark while she napped!
Turns out authorities were called for a welfare check on two dogs that she kept chained outside. When they arrived they were shocked to find the dogs with tape wrapped around their muzzles. The woman came out once the officers started removing the tape.
Take a look at this piece of work:

The woman admitted to what she had done, and removed the tape from the other dog. Thankfully the dogs were removed from her home and she was transferred to the Fulton County Correctional Facility. Share this with friends and family.
