Curtis What would be the best agency to contact? Animal control? The police?

Syaoransbear That's disgusting. I'd get the police involved.

MyHans-someBoy I can at least understand the "why" of cropping ears and docking tails in a working dog.

Our Cowdog's tail was already docked when we got her, presumably so that it would not get stepped on by a cow, pulling her to the ground, allowing her to then be trampled to death by the rest of the herd.

I've heard that LGDs have cropped ears so that wolves cannot grab ahold of them so easily.

I cannot exactly understand the "why" of a split tongue.

Had never even considered the possibility of such a thing...

Agreed. Makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it.

shannonrae This kind of scares me. Reasons why aside . . . I cannot imagine he is finding a veterinarian to split puppy tongues for him. That leads me to question how he is doing this. . . all the conclusions I come to fit in the "animal cruelty" category. Of course that is with a lot of assumption on my part.

sourdough44 No desire to ever consider such a thing.

Lilie It seems to me, that if you split a young puppies tongue shortly after whelping, it would eventually grow back together. He'd have to stitch it on either side, or something like that.
