First it was the teenaged girl from San Antonio licking a carton of Blue Bell ice cream, and then putting the carton back into the freezer at the store. Now, another teenager's desire for social media fame has prompted her to do something that is getting her attention, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
In a video that is going viral on Twitter, the girl, who appears to have people with her egging her on, laughs and grabs a small white dog and crams the animal into a clothes drier and turns it on.
She giggles and claps as the dog goes through the 'press' cycle. The dryer door doesn't have a window so the dog can't be seen. We then see the girl open the door and the dog, after taking a second to get its bearings after being flung up and down inside the dryer, runs away terrified.
Police in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville say they have identified the girl as a Lewisville resident.
"The case is being investigated as Cruelty to non-livestock animals. No other information will be provided at this time. Due to the age of the person involved, few details in this case may be released," Lewisville Police said in a statement.
Cruelty to non-livestock animals is a Class A misdemeanor, potentially punishable by up to a year in jail, but because of the girl's minor status, that is not expected to be the outcome of this case.
