A student in Taiwan has been charged after posting a photo of her cat in a container. The woman put the cat in the jar as a form of "punishment" and is now facing animal abuse charges. The woman took photos of the incident and posted them online, saying that she was disciplining the cat. Once the photo went viral, the woman changed her tune.
"I love her so much, and I was just testing out the most convenient method of taking her out. And I only did it once," the woman explained to the media. Police investigated the case and ended up holding the student accountable for the animal's well-being, charging her accordingly.
The woman has been charged with violating the animal protection law and the file has already been forwarded to the district prosecutor's office. It is unclear what sort of repercussions the woman faces.
