Vet Accused of Keeping Dog Alive for Blood Transfusions Charged with Animal Cruelty
A Texas veterinarian has been arrested on animal cruelty charges after a family accused him of keeping their dog alive for months so he could use the pet's blood for transfusions.
Dr. Millard (Lou) Tierce is charged with cruelty to animals, non-livestock. His vet license has also been suspended, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reports.
Tierce, of Fort Worth's Camp Bowie Animal Clinic, turned himself into police around 7 p.m. Wednesday. Shortly after his booking, he posted $10,000 bond.
