 (WBIR) The Knox County Sheriff's Office is continuing to investigate a photo of a dog tied to a trailer stopped at a red light in Farragut.

In a matter of hours, a picture shared by a viewer on the WBIR Facebook page went viral.

The first photo shows a dog tied to a trailer; the second taken later shows the driver untangling the dog. The thousands of shares, comments and likes caught the attention of local law enforcement.

"We're seeing a lot of how social media affects law enforcement," said Martha Dooley, Knox County Sheriff's Office spokesperson. "We can go back several months and talk about pictures that have been taken on crime scenes and how that makes a story explode. Well, look at this."
