HORRIFIC images have emerged of a naked baby being treated like a pet as it’s led around naked on a LEASH.
In one sick picture the one-year-old tot can be seen crawling on a concrete floor, with a white lead around its neck, eating from a plastic bowl.
The pictures – posted on Facebook – went viral after they were shared by disgusted viewers.
The twisted mother, from Bataan on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, was forced to hand herself to social authorities after being flooded with negative comments.
The baby is now being cared for by social workers.
“No one has the right to treat a child like a toy,” said Corazon Juliano-Soliman, from the the Department of Social Welfare and Development
“Whoever does this can be punished under the law. Even if it was made in jest, it was done in bad taste.
“The child does not know that it is just a joke
“It is a clear case of child abuse and the perpetrator is liable under the Violence against Women and Children Act .”
