Schwarzenegger Outlaws Tail Docking

Schwarzenegger Outlaws Tail Docking

 In Blog

Some great news to start the week: California Governor Schwarzenegger has, er, terminated the practice of tail docking dairy cows. Last night he signed a bill outlawing the practice.

Being a dairy cow still sucks, but at least millions of California cows will now be spared the cruelty of having their tails severed. And the bill’s passage will undoubtedly put pressure on other top dairy states to follow suit. The bill takes effect in January. (Via Fearing.) Link to coverage in the Central Valley Business Times, and to the HSUS press release.

Update: here’s HSUS chief Wayne Pacelle’s blog entry all about the tail docking ban. Link.
