Mom puts baby on a leash calls it a “pet”

Ayra Dela Cruz Francisco, Manila, Philippines, posted images of her son on a leash  on all fours as if he were a dog on facebook and the internet nearly exploded.

Francisco, posted several images of her “pet” baby, a naked child with a “leash” around his neck, hunched over a bowl of what appears to be dog food. She appeared very “amused with the “pet” baby, writing she laughed so hard at how the baby was very obedient.”

The daily mail reported that the facebook post was seen by a woman in Ireland, a child abuse campaigner, Lurleen Hilliard. Hilliard reported the images to the authorities.

The child was taken into care after his mother turned herself into social services.
