State officials have suspended a Fort Worth veterinarian's license after he admitted telling some clients he would euthanize their pets but instead kept them in cages at his clinic.
 
The Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners temporarily suspended Dr. Lucien Tierce's license Thursday, a day after he was arrested on animal cruelty charges. He was released on $10,000 bond.

The board says agents searching his Camp Bowie Animal Clinic in Fort Worth found "animal organs in jars" and "stacks of drugs, trash, laundry" and bugs throughout the clinic.

A customer is accusing a popular Fort Worth veterinarian of stealing animals and conducting blood transfusions on her dog, which was supposed to have been euthanized.

On Tuesday, officers stood guard outside the Camp Bowie Animal Clinic as investigators seized two dogs. 

“It’s part of the investigation,” said Sgt. Raymond Bush, a Fort Worth Police spokesman. “So, at this point, these animals are evidence.”
