(ABC 6 NEWS) -- The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office is looking into possible animal cruelty charges after a picture of a dog taped to a wall showed up on Facebook.

Authorities say it was a prank by a 12-year-old and 13-year-old girl from Stewartville. Somebody saw the picture and contacted authorities.

The dog wasn't hurt. The girls say they put Saran Wrap over the dog before taping it so hair wouldn't be ripped from the animal. You can also see one of the girls holding her hand underneath it.

The picture was removed from Facebook.
