bloody nora, what an idiot, and why 90 days, and 2 year probation, people like that should not be allowwed to have animals for the rest of their lives, flipping blind justice, nearsighted indeed

God Bless A.K., poor little baby!! I do not understand the mentality of some people. Why would he do such a horrific thing to such a sweetheart as A.K.?? Is there any hope of ear reconstruction for A.K.?? Will A.K. be put up for adoption?? Who will pay for his health care?? Ronnie Salmon needs to have HIS ears cut off and see how HE likes it!!

Thnx Cher, heartbreakingly noted.

I've heard of people doing this to pit bulls to give them that "fighter" image. I could not imagine taking a pair of scissors to my dogs ears. I took care of a great dane pup who had his ears done for the show ring, believe me it is extremely painful and emotionally disturbing for the dog. It is a sick practice. My great dane Gracie has natural ears and she is cute as a button--a big button.

NINETY DAYS?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAAAAAAAAT?????!!!!!! Thatīs just taking the p*ss!!!! This retard deserves to really be punished! Whatīs 90 days compared to the suffering heīs made this poor creature go through?!

Iīve always despised this stupid practice, even if itīs done by vets... people are such snobs, and donīt care about how this affects the animals.

Thanks Cher.

OMG...90 days only? $587 only? Give me a break. If this was something he did to a human, he'd of gotten years in prison. Just the thought of the pain this poor animal went through just breaks my heart... People like this deserve to endure the same pain in which they afflicted...ugh!!!!!

I personally believe in capital punishment for animal abuse.It is sick,disgusting,and makes a mockery of the laws,that do not serve justice to fit the crimes commited by these type of low-lifes who deem it a God-given right to own one of these beautiful creatures.It is legestration that needs to be changed.Preferably...the death penalty.

I believe that every abuser/predator should be tattooed on their foreheads so that WE ALL KNOW WHO THEY ARE and microchipped so that WE ALL KNOW WHERE THEY ARE.

Noted. Also noted same news story by June earlier. Very sad for the lovely dog. This person has lost his humanity and is a danger to society.

From reading the article,it seems that the man acted with full awareness of his actions.Therefore it must be concluded that he is scum.As animal abusers are often child abusers,there is a high risk that he will abuse children.I hope the local children's services are fully up to speed with this vile piece of dog825t.
