KANEOHE, HI - Two Hawaiian women have filed a lawsuit against a Petco store in Kaneohe for separate alleged incidents of dog mutilations on the part of the chain's groomers.

According to the HawaiiNewsNow.com, Gladys Kupuwai and Estelle Green say their dogs suffered injuries during grooming at the pet store.

Kupuwai claimed she dropped off her granddaughter's dog, Dodo, for a bit of primping, but when she picked up the pooch, she noticed the groomers had taken a little too much off the top.

"[She] was dried, bloody, was dry blood, everything," Kapuwai told HawaiiNewsnow.com. "I noticed that at home, so when I took her to the vet, the doctor had told me it looked like they tried to glue it back."

Green claims her dog also suffered at the hands of over exuberant clippers, returning home with bloody nails and piece of its tail missing.

Green's husband Michael, who is prosecuting both cases, told HawaiiNewsNow, "The nails are bleeding because they were cut too short, the dog was filthy and the tip of the dog's tail was cut off,"

Petco told the Associated Press they are investigating the case.
