A man in Wales, UK, has been found guilty of cutting off his dog's ears with a pair of scissors.

Christopher Griffiths, 34, was caught in the middle of the act by a neighbour, who had heard the dog's screams of pain.

Following the attack on September 22 last year, vets discovered that the dog, called Victor, had cocaine in his system.



Prosecutor Glen Murphy told Wrexham Magistrates Court that Griffiths had caused 'unnecessary pain' to his Staffordshire bull terrier.

Bethan Jones, defending, told the court that Griffiths had suffered a serious brain injury 14 months ago which had also affected his mobility and strength and his left arm was paralysed.

She said he physically would not have been capable of carrying out the attack.

But the court heard how his testimony did not add up and found him guilty of both counts yesterday.
