Ethical Question of the Day: Are Piercings for Pets OK?

Short answer as given to a Pennsylvania woman who thought it would be cute to sell pierced "Goth" kittens online: No.

Longer answer: "One of the judges wrote in the 19-page opinion: “Appellant’s claims center on her premise that a person of normal intelligence would not know whether piercing a kitten’s ears or banding its tail is maiming, mutilating, torturing or disfiguring an animal. We disagree.”
