Trending Viral: A disturbing video viral on social media where women can be seen kicking and chocking a dog

** Update 22Sep19 your voices of concern have been heard worldwide. News media from around the world are covering this story all because of everyone’s support against animal abuse. I really hope everyone can focus on the positive that is coming from this video and not the negative. Violence and threats are completely against the message I am hoping to spread. Michelle A. Sieber to my knowledge has not been bailed out with her bail set to $5,000. She is facing Felony charges. The dogs are SAFE and being held until the investigation is over.

** Thank you for all the support! For those who would have choose the violent route I understand your frustration. However documenting is key to a habitual offender. The link below confirms her booking into the Pinellas County jail.

Great job everyone!

*** Update she has been found and the dogs are safe. Great job TSPD!! Thanks, everyone for your help.****

**** Update this was reported to local authorities by me early this morning. They have identified the woman in this video earlier on. Tarpon Springs Police Department was extremely supportive and started an investigation. Please don’t incriminate yourselves with violence. That is a short term reaction to what seems to be a long term problem. With this video hopefully, we can put a stop to it. To my knowledge, they have not located her or the vehicle yet but I will keep everyone posted. Thank you.***

****Tarpon friends please share if you see the van let me know where or call Tarpon Springs Police Department****

Who do I call to report animal abuse?
