UK social media trend: Dogs are getting their ears cut off

Source, Rescue Hope

According to a review from the BBC’s documentary programme, BBC Wales Investigates, people are buying dogs with their ears cropped simply because they think they look better and it’s the social media craze. While this operation, banned in England, is carried out illegally, according to the people who carried it out, the dogs’ false passports are obtained from Turkey.

According to the new “fashion”, a part of the auricle of the dogs is cut or “cropped” only for aesthetic reasons.

The value of dogs whose ears are cut off, ie mutilated, increases by $2,000.

The reporters, who contacted dog breeders anonymously for BBC Wales Investigates, replied: “Ear clipping creates ‘striking’ appearance for American bully breed.”
