Officials are trying to find the owner of a dog whose ears were cut off and abandoned at a school in New Jersey.

The Cane Corso was found at School No. 9 in Woodbridge on Tuesday.

Township spokesman John Hagerty tells The Star-Ledger of Newark the dog was tied to the school's backdoor with a leash. Hagerty says the ears were "cut flush to the head."

The male dog is black with a white star in its chest.

The dog has been treated by a veterinarian and taken to the Woodbridge Animal Shelter.
