Cruelty to animals in the UK: Breeder cuts off puppies’ ears
In January 2019, animal rights activists raided Simon Davis together with the police. The investigators were presented with a terrible picture. They found seven kennels with eight American bulldogs in a converted garage. As the British « Sun » reports, the breeder cut seven puppies’ ears before selling them for just under 8,000 euros each.
Evidence of the brutal cruelty to animals was abundant. Investigators seized before and after photos of the puppies, syringes, razor blades and tweezers. It was also found that Davis wanted to buy tables and ear clips in order to perform the cruel mutilation. The breeder also used the services of a « cropper » from the USA.
Behavioral disorder caused by cropped ears
« Veterinarians confirm that mutilating the pinna in dogs can interfere with effective communication and even lead to behavioral problems, » quotes Sun Prize activist Sara Pratt from RSPCA.
Simon Davis has now been sentenced to twelve months in prison and 160 hours of work. He also has to pay just under 12,000 euros.
