Gruesome Cruelty Canine Cannibalism
Couple charged with feeding butchered puppy to other dogs.
North Carolina deputies say they made a gruesome discovery Tuesday when they went to a Newport home with animal control officers.
Inside a storage building they found a dog eating the leg of an 8-week-old puppy that deputies say had previously been gutted by the residents.
They also learned the puppy's internal organs were fed to other dogs.
Deputies also found another dead dog in a cage.
Gina Alfano and Kevin Diers have been charged with cruelty to animals and failing to dispose of a deceased domesticated animal.
The puppy's remains were collected to determine if the trauma it suffered was before or after it died.
The two posted $25,000 bond.
