KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A dog was found on Stadium Drive mutilated and abused, a rescue group said.
The Missouri Pit Bull Rescue group said Victory, as the young pit bull is now being called, was badly bleeding when she was rescued.
Someone used scissors to cut off the dog's ears, a spokeswoman for the group said.
Amy Nash, vice president of the rescue group, said some people crop pit bulls' ears to breed them for fighting. But Nash said this doesn't appear to be a botched crop job. She said this dog was butchered.
"I haven't seen something quite this bad before," Nash said. "Somebody had cut off her ears. Just cut them down to nothing. We've never seen a dog with literally no ears like that before."
