Newport, N.C. (The Weekly Vice) - Kevin Diers, 52, and Gina Alfano, 43, were jailed Tuesday after they allegedly skinned and gutted a dog, which was then fed to other dogs.
According to the Carteret County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the couple's home after receiving an anonymous complaint that alleged possible animal abuse.
When deputies arrived at the home, they received permission to have a look around the premises, including a storage shed located on the couple's property.
When officers opened the shed's door, they discovered the carcass of a puppy that had been skinned and then gutted. Deputies also discovered a black dog that was feeding on the eight-week old puppy's leg.
Investigators later learned that the puppy's organs had been removed and then used to feed other dogs that the couple housed on the property.
Diers and Alfano were booked into the Carteret County Jail on charges of cruelty to animals and failing to dispose of a deceased domesticated animal. The couple was released after posting $25,000 bond each.
