Stop unnessasary ear cropping

Dear reader, ear cropping has been done in many countries for thousands of years. Ear cropping is the removal of part or all of the pinnae or auricles, the external visible flap of the ear, of an animal. Most commonly performed on dogs, it is an ancient practice that was once done for perceived health, practical or cosmetic reasons. In modern times, it is banned in many nations, but where legal, it is usually performed for cosmetic reasons, usually related to show grooming. It is seen only certain breeds of dog such as the Pit bull, Doberman Pinscher, Schnauzer, Great Dane and Boxer. It is not banned in America, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Peru, Phillippines, Nepal, Mexico, etc. It is very painfull to the dog and should be stopped.
