Tail docking, (also called tail banding), is the cruel and unnessary proceedure practiced on farm animals- such as cows, sheep and pigs. The animals tail is cut off- exposing nerves and tailbones with no pain relief- or, a rubber band is wrapped tightly

Tail docking is not only unneeded but dangerous...I have a rescued Olde English Bulldog whose tail was docked so short that it disfgured his backbone.This is such a sad procedure....It angers me to do such a horrible thing,
Gladly signed Cher...Thanks

someone once explained that sheep get alot of poop on their tails. That doesn't explain pig tail docking.
Docking dog's ears, tails for show certainly doesn't make any sense either.
hmmm maybe if humans had circumsion at adult hood, that would end in a jiffy in Western culture? Imagine it similar to docking, only I believe, humans use something to numb the pain. (??)
One good thing about being born female-in America

This is beyond cruelty, this is torture to these innocent victims. Can we put rubber bands around certain parts of the men that do this to these animals??

This is a slightly different issue, but anyone living in the northwest may have heard of the story recently: some horrible person is trespassing on people's farms at night and stealing the horses' tails! What is wrong with our species?
