Puppy torture on Facebook sheds light on Ohio's animal abuse laws
If our lawmakers need a compelling example why Ohio's lenient animal abuse laws and penalties need more teeth - here it is.
A tipster provided Facebook video showing men cropping a puppy's ears. Using a straight razor and mallet, the ears are lopped off on the armrest of a chair. The pup's mangled flesh is coated with flour to stop the bleeding.
Thanks to your tips, 6 On Your Side Investigator Tom Sussi was able to track down the puppy and the men accused of torturing this animal.
