A photo of a white puppy pegged to a clothesline was posted on social networking site Facebook, from which it received a huge outcry from both netizens and animal lovers. A young Filipino, Jerzon Senador, had posted this picture up, and in response to the public outrage the photo had garnered, he boasted that he would not be jailed.

Animal activists, including the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), are hoping that the boy would be prosecuted for his blatant act of cruelty. The teenager has since removed the image from his Facebook site and has written an apology. It read, "I hope you could forgive me and I promise it would never happen again."

Netizens have refused to forgive him, and his apology has prompted a whole host of Facebook pages expressing their outrage against this teen. In the meantime, the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) has launched an investigation into the case.
