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.
