On January 5th, 2013, a woman in McLennan County, Texas posted a picture on Facebook of a mouse closed inside a pickle jar. The image shows the mouse attempting to stay afloat in the jar filled with juice (part of this image has been blurred here for issues of decency).
The original image can be seen here.
"Update on our friend[.] The noodles are softening LOL[.] He is so trying to stay afloat!!! LOL"
Advocates are calling for action in hopes that county sheriffs will take notice and investigate it as a case of animal cruelty. For those interested in helping advocates bring attention to this case, they may contact:
McLennan County (TX) Sheriff's Department
