An animal hospital in Greenville, North Carolina, has raised concerns over the suspicious abuse and mutilation of a young puppy.
The staff says that the owner, Tony Lopez, intentionally cut off the puppy’s ears with scissors or other sharp object. He then used superglue to “stick” the ears back to the puppy’s temples.
