Sanger, CA, USA (KFSN) -- A Sanger man is in jail after police say he got drunk and used scissors to cut off a dog's ears.

This bastard's ears should be cut off just like Maggie's were......

The dog, named Maggie, is okay, but is now looking for a new home.

Police were called to a Sanger home earlier this month after a neighbor called to report a whining dog. When they got there, police found the injured dog and scissors nearby. "The subject was intoxicated and he decided she would look better with her ears out of her face and so he basically took a pair of scissors and chopped her ears off," said Sanger Animal Control Officer Don Scott.

Police arrested 34 year old Irenceo Perales at the scene. They say Perales had been living with the family and was covered in blood. "There were not a lot of injuries on the subject at all, where she bit. She was so trusting, she didn't even try to fight back," said Scott.

The dog was rushed to Veterinary Emergency Services in Fresno, but when the animal's owners couldn't pay for her vet bill, Dr. Margret Andersen offered to pay for her care. Maggie is named after the vet who came to her rescue.
