    If convicted, Mr Darrell and his co-horts should have THEIR ears clipped. AND banned from owning ANY animal ever. These types of people make me sick.

  2. Um Um Like says:

    SMH still paying attention to the wardens. For the most part a vet does them it’s supposed to be illegal to have them done locally(depending on who you are). Dogs/Puppies regularly travel overseas to get the surgery return home and its no problem. Good work by the wardens keep opening up new cans of worms that will help have the departments inconsistent policies exposed. Those who know will know what I am talking about.

  7. Gabbs says:

    That has been banned world wide of the cutting of dog ears!! Know ya facts buddy before you start running up ya CHOPS!!

    • Errin Butterfield says:

      You don’t have a clue,better described as ignorant. As for having facts before someone starts running up their CHOPS!! You should use your own advice buddy.

    Gabbs, Know your facts, there are many states in the US that still do this procedure, as well as some other countries. To have your dogs ears cropped or tail docked or dew claws removed is a matter for the owner to decide on, not some do gooder on the outside looking in and running their mouth. Deliverance, you may want to start being sick because there are many breeds of dogs that have this done and many responsible owners that prefer to have a dog that is cropped or docked or both. Get over it.

    • Deliverance says:

      get over it? it is a known fact that cruelty to animals is a symptom of deep psychological issues which usually manifest themselves in further violence, usually towards humans.

    really? going to prison or pay monies for allegedly cutting of a dog ears, well people come to my world. I have two pitbulls and I cut off the ears of the male and it really do look very nice and the posture awwwwww niceeeee some dogs were bred for these procedures people so please don’t condemn a man for allegedly doing what is not a crime

    • Deliverance says:

      the reason why you cut the ears of Pit Bulls is for fighting. If you are saying that PitBulls are bred for that then you should not own any animal! i can’t wait for the day when these procedure are not only illegal but followed up on and people properly penalized. causing a dog pain and harm for your own amusement is just sick.

      • Errin Butterfield says:

        Most dogs and including some Pit Bulls ears are cut for cosmetic reasons. I am not condoning it but just stating a fact. Yes I will acknowledge that some breeds ears are cut for illegal reasons i.e. fighting but this is not always the case

    • BermudaGirl says:

      Dit, you are a twit. Stop talking, stop owning animals, and go sit alone somewhere away from everyone, you miserable animal abuser. Some men were born to have their D____s cut off, and you are one of them!
