TYLER, Texas — A Texas woman is sparking outrage in her community over a Facebook post in which she asks someone to kill her dog — because she wouldn’t stay out of the garbage.

KHOU reports that the dog is a 3-year-old St. Bernard/English bulldog mix named Cinnamon.

KHOU reports that the woman’s post stated:

“I need someone to come shoot my dog, nobody here has the heart to do it! We will provide the gun!”

After the statement was posted on Facebook, animal control officers went to the woman’s home.

She reportedly told them she wanted the dog killed because she could no longer take care of her and because the dog kept getting into the garbage.

Cinnamon was placed with a foster family until she can be adopted out. She is reportedly healthy and in good shape.

The woman would not comment on the story. Police say she will not face charges since she surrendered the dog.
