Hold Soccer Player Responsible for Allegedly Mutilating Dogs

Target: Michael Matheson MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Justice

Goal: Prosecute soccer player for allegedly mutilating dogs.

A soccer player has allegedly been mutilating dogs by chopping off parts of their ears to make them more “stylish.” James Tavernier, a star soccer player, posted on his Instagram account boasting about his new business ‘Designer Bullies UK’. These “devil dogs” are usually American bullies and this tactic of chopping off part of their ears is used to make the breed look more intimidating. This mutilation is unnecessary and cruel.

Even though ear cropping dogs is illegal in the EU and UK, the soccer player had no reservations when posting the dogs with their ears cut off online. Although it’s unclear if the reported ear-cropping was done in the UK or abroad, this is a horrific act of animal cruelty that Tavernier is allegedly participating in. Demand that Tavernier is held responsible for these alleged heinous actions.


Dear Mr. Matheson,

Rangers right-back James Tavernier is allegedly selling dogs that have been mutilated because they look ‘cool.’ This act is known as ear-cropping and, as you know, is illegal in the EU and UK. Even if he is not committing the crime himself, this star soccer player is reportedly participating in the selling of these precious dogs and paying for these mutilated dogs. This heinous act of animal cruelty needs to come to an end. These dogs’ ears are butchered during this process— which is mostly done by people in their homes with makeshift scalpels and anesthetic kits bought online.

These types of dogs are already abused and mistreated. This attempt to make them look even more intimidating is going to cause more abuse to these bully breeds. Making these breeds into “devil dogs” is an act of animal cruelty on its own. Mutilation is not stylish. These dogs do not deserve this cruel treatment. We demand that James is punished for his reported actions.

  2. I agree with others in lets cut James’s ears off to see how he looks. Maybe he will think it is still stylish. What an evil cruel monster. He does not deserve to be alive. Do not allow him to get away with this cruel crime to an innocent animal. Sick scum bag.

    i would want to do the same to him, the utter scumbag. This is against the law, throw him in the slammer with an animal lover as a cell mate. May karma ensure you feel the weight of your vile actions in whatever way she deems fit.
