RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 6-month-old puppy was found on Monday near Sanders Park in Racine County with her ears nearly severed off, a result of having rubber bands tightly tied around them.

The woman who found the dog brought her to the Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus.

Staff at the Wisconsin Humane Society said both ears were tied off with small black rubber bands and only a small amount of tissue held Molly’s ears to her head; staff suspect it was the result of a botched attempt to crop her ears at home.
