Dog Saved by Surgery: Busted for Eating Bras

A UK Rottweiler named Molly has been seized from Rebecca Danville and Stuart lane of Grimsby. The dog was noted as having a distended stomach, and was only half the weight of a normal Rottweiler. A vet x-ray revealed a stomach full of undergarments.

A UK Rottweiler named Molly has been seized from Rebecca Danville and Stuart lane of Grimsby. The dog was noted as having a distended stomach, and was only half the weight of a normal Rottweiler.

Vets immediately sedated and x-rayed the ailing pooch in search of answers and were amazed to find that Molly had a belly full of bras – twelve of them, weighing a total of eleven pounds. That eleven pound figure sounds sounds high until you hear a quote from Michael Jefferson, one of the vets responsible for Molly’s care. “We pulled out around a dozen under garments which were very large and can only be described as for a lady of a fuller figure. Within days Molly was like a new dog.”

Jefferson estimated that the undergarments had been lodged in Molly’s belly for as long as three months. “In my opinion the owners of this dog by their negligence caused her unnecessary suffering over a considerable period of time in not seeking veterinary attention for her obvious emaciation and vomiting. She was like a hat rack when she came in and was almost skeletal. I’ve never seen anything like it. Her stomach was so distended it took up her whole abdomen.”

Molly’s owners plead guilty to animal cruelty charges in court on Thursday and were banned from owning additional pets. Molly is now recovering with her new family in Lincolnshire and is said to be happy and healthy – and thankful for the support of those who helped to rescue her.

  1. Tat’s a lot of bras to stomach… gosh! such owners should be banned for life from having any pets.. and fined heavily.. and and banned from ever owning any bras too.

    🙂 yea.. i am cruel on some days.

  2. It’d take YEARS before there was any accumulation in my gut from eatin’ Mom’s bras. They taste great but they’re less fillin’.

    So glad those idiots can’t have any more 4 leggers in their household.

  3. Oh my word… poor dog…they are the worst. Sweet Rottie suffering right there before their eyes and they did not care. Good grief. I cannot imagine how the dog was able to swallow a bra without choking either….oh my stars
    Madi and Mom

  4. Certainly a more rational legal outcome than those we have seen lately in the US. Nice to know humanity and sanity still exist somewhere.

  5. 3 months in her stomach?? thats crazy.. whats more amazing is that the hooman doesnt even realise a dozen of her bras are missing?? thats just retarded.. Now it makes me wonder what is their level of hygiene is like in the house.
