Look at those glorious ears.
Of course, they're beautiful. And the world would be a dimmer place without them.
But if anyone still needs convincing that ear cropping is bad, consider this:
"There is zero debate that performing the surgery has no medical value," Rob Halpin of MSPCA-Angell, a Massachusetts rescue and veterinary hospital, tells The Dodo. "The animal is put through the pain and suffering of a surgical procedure for no other reason than the owner prefers the appearance of cropped ears."
