Hi,
ears and tails WERE cut for esthetic reasons for the PAST STANDARD of beauty.

Laws are voted by the majority in our countries.

–> the CURRENT STANDARD of beauty is today anymore with uncut ear and tails.

Cutting is FORBIDDEN in many countries, including European Union and other western countries.

Article 10 de la Convention européenne pour la protection des animaux de compagnie du 13 novembre 1987.
