ST. LOUIS, Missouri (FOX26 News) -- A woman in Missouri takes a picture of two people forcing their puppy to drag weights during his walk.

And according to Missouri law it's completely legal.

Kathy Venegoni says she took the photo because she believes this is animal cruelty.

But the Humane Society of Missouri says unless the dog is severely underweight or injured, they cannot prevent what is happening in the picture.

Venegoni says she wants to find the people responsible and give their names to police.

However, police say that what the dog owners did was not illegal.

But if the weights cause the dog to be in distress, animal cruelty charges could be filed.
