Greyhound ears brutally cut
A greyhound has her ears brutally
cut off to remove all traces of
identity, a vet said yesterday. The
mutilated dog was found bleeding heavily
in the north Kerry village of Ballyduff
Shocked County Veterinary Officer Paddy
Fenton said: " Greyhounds have to carry
ear markings from birth and this dog had
her ears completely cut of. "It was a
shocking, completely sickening sigh- I
have never seen anything so barbaric."
Gardai have launched a probe and a new
home has been found for the animal.
