Tim Conatser of Royse City, Texas, has been removed from his position as a volunteer firefighter and could face criminal charges after his post went viral.
A volunteer firefighter sparked an online firestorm after he allegedly posted a picture on Facebook bragging about killing two dogs.
The original, unedited image:
His post has since been taken down, but was saved by social media users. In it, he implies that he killed two dogs because they kept wandering off their own property.
The post immediately drew outrage online, with local residents complaining to the Royse City Fire Department because Conatser identified himself as a firefighter on his page.
The department said on its Facebook page that Conatser was actually a volunteer for another local fire department, but has been "terminated."
