People Are Sharing This Dog Meme And Claiming It's From A Serbian Animal Brothel

It is unclear whether The Mirror is aware that the image is not from an animal brothel, but part of a wider dog meme.

The story says that European TV channel RTL recently published an investigation into "zoophiles" traveling to Serbia's capital, Belgrade, to have sex with animals.

The picture set appears to have gained popularity around May this year as part of a meme making fun of drunk girls and perverted men who prey on them, and a joke about the anime Fullmetal Alchemist.

The story of the dog brothels seems to have started last month, when the animal rights group cited in the Mirror article, Levijatan, published a Facebook post about dog brothels.

The post contains a warning about "extreme photography" and says Levijatan has "received information" about dog brothels in Belgrade and calls them a "Western trend."

The post offers a 1,000-euro reward to anyone willing to take the group to a brothel.

BuzzFeed News has contacted Levijatan, RTL, and The Mirror for comment.
