Mal, When I mount small mammals I do not remove ear cartilage. I use Apoxie-sculpt instead of bondo in small ears(up to coyote size)as it gives more working time and allows for shape correction for a couple of hours. I cut a hole into the form at each ear location and fill this with clay. When mounting, I push the ear cartilage butt into this clay which will harden and give a solid support to the ear. Remember to look at good reference pictures every time as you mount. Enjoy, Aaron H.

Thanks Aaron
