Veterinarian Who Implanted Heroin in Puppies' Bellies Pleads Not Guilty
A veterinarian who allegedly implanted heroin into the bellies of puppies for a Colombian drug ring has pleaded not guilty to charges in the U.S. He was extradited from Spain on Monday.
The Associated Press reports Andres Lopez Elorza stitched packets of liquid heroin into puppies' bellies who were shipped on commercial flights to New York City. Then, the packets were cut out of the puppies and they died in the process.
Ten puppies were found during a 2005 raid on a Colombia farm.
