A dog had to undergo surgery after an Iowa man shoved a light bulb inside of her body. As reported by the Daily Nonpareil, 72-year-old Clifford Gustin admitted to his family that he had inserted a light bulb into their dog…he did not admit to his perverse act until 24 hours after it was committed.

Chief Animal Control Officer Galen’s report about the incident states that the accused man,

 “did place a…light bulb into the vagina of his dog, Athena.”

After the family learned what happened, Athena was taken to VCA Midwest Veterinary Referral & Emergency Center in Omaha where she underwent surgery to have the light bulb removed.

The bulb was removed from Athena’s body and she now resides with a new family. The man accused of inserting the light bulb into her body has only been ordered to pay a $350 fine.
