The officials found that the approximately 3-month-old pups “recently had an ear cropping procedure,” that is illegal, unless it is done with anesthesia by a licensed veterinarian, the organization said.
The puppy’s are taken by PSPCA officials and receive medical care, the organization said.
“These dogs are suffering through this traumatic experience for no other reason than that it is an outdated view of aesthetics,” PSPCA Director of Humane Law Enforcement Nicole Wilson said in the press release. “Whatever anyone may feel about the issue of ear-cropping, no-one can imagine that an alleged lover of schnauzers would be cut off to these puppies’ ears without the appropriate anaesthesia or analgesia, such as is alleged in this case.”
