Man Jailed For 24 Weeks After Feeding His Dog Cocaine And Cutting Off Its Ears With Pliers And Scissors

m_optA 34 year old man from Wrexham has been jailed for 24 weeks at the back of causing unnecessary harm his dog. Christopher Griffiths was found guilty of animal welfare offences following a trial at Wrexham Magistrates’ Court.
The Telegraph reports that, the man was found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering and carrying out a prohibited procedure to his dog following the September 2015 incident.
He was handed a 24 week prison sentence, was disqualified from keeping dogs for 10 years and was given a 12 month probation order.
Mr Griffiths denied the charges and said he had been the victim of an assault. He claimed his alleged attacker cut the dog’s ear off when he was unconscious.
RSPCA inspector Kia Thomas said: “When I first saw Victor I was just so shocked as his ears were gaping open wounds. I had never seen anything quite like it before.
“It must have been so painful for him. It was just so heartbreaking. It is awful to imagine what poor Victor went through. It was totally unnecessary.”
Inspector Thomas added: “Since Victor has been in our care he has been doing so well. He is an adorable dog with a lot of love to give. He loves nothing more than to be in your company and loves a cwtch [cuddle] on the sofa.”
RSPCA Cymru said: “We are delighted to say he recovered and is now looking for a home.”
