Photos Circulating on Facebook / Yardsale Website depicting animal cruelty

The Chambersburg Police Dept. and other area police departments have received reports of an individual posting photos of a cat wrapped in duct tape on a local Facebook Yard Sale web page.  This incident has been confirmed as a hoax and the cat depicted in the Facebook photo appears to have been pulled off of another webpage.  The photo was reposted on the yard sale site as a prank.  The Chambersburg Police Dept. would like to thank those who took the time to report the possible Cruelty to Animals incident as the photo is disturbing.
