Puppy given alcohol leads to charges for 3 Ohio residents

Three Ohio residents accused of giving alcoholic drinks to a puppy have been charged with misdemeanor cruelty to a companion animal after one of the defendants posted a picture of the passed-out dog on Facebook.

The Star-Beacon (http://bit.ly/2gQlXzu ) reports the three adults from Ashtabula (ash-tuh-BYOO'-luh) were charged after one of them said another intentionally gave vodka and Kahlua to the 3-month-old puppy, and the third posted the photo. Someone called police after seeing the Facebook photo.

The city's animal control officer removed the dog from the home and took it to the local Animal Protective League.
