New Legislation Introduced to Ban Tail Docking in Dairy Cows

California Senate Majority Leader Dean Florez has introduced legislation, SB 135, to ban tail docking of dairy cows, except "during an individual treatment, emergency or operation, if the treatment or operation is performed by a veterinarian for veterinary purposes" with proper anesthesia. The move was praised by the Humane Society of America, who stated the practice of routinely amputating portions of dairy cows' tails-without any painkiller-is already banned in several nations.

It's good news for God's Creation every time an effort is made to alleviate the suffering of God's animals. It is our hope that this piece of legislation passes and that it is adopted by other states.
