People in Texas, were shocked to learn that a woman offered her gun to anyone willing to come to her home and shoot her dog.

The woman in Troupe, invited her friends on Facebook, to come to her home and shoot her dog Cinnamon because nobody in her household was willing to kill it.

The woman, who was not identified, even offered to provide the gun. Her message on Facebook, stirred outrage and animal rights groups got involved.

A dog rescue group in Tyler, immediately launched a campaign to have the dog adopted. The woman said that she can no longer take care of the dog because it runs away.

The Smith County Animal Control was contacted and officers took custody of Cinnamon. The dog owner will not face any criminal charges because she handed over Cinnamon to animal control officials.

Cinnamon was taken to the vet and it got a clean bill of health.
