A Delaware man is being charged with animal cruelty because he tried cropping his pit bull puppy’s ears by himself with a pair of scissors. The man said that he got instructions from someone on how to crop his dog’s ears, but since he didn’t know what he was doing, the wounds on his dog’s ears became infected. The man admitted to what he did and if he is convicted of the misdemeanor, he could be fined up to $2,300 and/or be sentenced to a year in jail. The dog has been treated by a vet and is staying at a shelter until the charges are resolved.
