An image of a four-year-old girl attacked by a pet dog in Wales in United States in 2008 has surfaced recently on the social media with several users, many of them identified as supporters of Donald Trump, claiming that the the picture is of a boy in Sweden attacked by Muslims.
The image was first posted by Canadian Twitter user, David G Gowing, according to Wales Online. “Swedish boy beaten by Islamic terrorists because he has blue eyes!,” the self-proclaimed Trump supporter tweeted on Sunday.
His post was shared over 511 times before it was taken down.
According to reports, the image actually shows a girl called Sophie Willis in Wales who was attacked by a dog.
Even after the other users raised doubts on authenticity of the image, David said: “Notice how the wound follows the curve of the bridge of the eye socket? Powerful dog bite not!”
It was unclear whether the post was later removed by the user himself or Twitter.
