A twisted individual from Wrexham, Wales, has just been convicted of cutting his dogs ears off so that he could use the pet for dog fighting.
In the harrowing tale, which was unveiled at court, neighbours of the man, known as Christopher Griffiths, recalled how they had heard the dog squealing in pain as he hacked the Staffordshire Bull Terriers ears off, reports the Mirror.
And as if things couldn’t get any more horrific, the dog also had a substantial amount of cocaine in its system when it was found.

Griffiths was appearing in court to try and overturn the animal cruelty conviction against him, however he failed to do so.
His alibi was that he had been knocked unconscious by an intruder and by the time he had regained consciousness his pets ears had been cut off.
The magistrates concluded that they still firmly believe Griffiths was the man who did it.
A neighbour, who heard the ‘stressful calls of the dog’ rushed over and Griffiths shouted that he needed pliers to remove the muzzle from the staffie, however the witness claimed that Griffiths was leaning over the dog and had what appeared to be a ‘fabric’ in his hands.
The horrible bastard is set to be sentenced at a later date however he has already been charged with causing unnecessary suffering to the dog and carrying out a prohibited procedure by cutting off the ears.
Hopefully this dog finds a better home in the very near future.
