Authorities in Ohio have launched an investigation after photos of a 2-month-old Columbus girl with duct-tape across her pacifier sparked outrage on social media.
The photos were posted to Facebook Thursday, and by Friday, Franklin County Children Services was involved, interviewing the baby's grandmother, who took the photo.
One of the photos shows the infant in a pan used for cooking, next to potatoes, and another shows the baby with a pacifier duct-taped to her mouth.
The baby's mother said the photos were taken out of context, and were meant to be prop photos.
"We would never go out of our way to harm these children ever! Ever!" she said.
