Dehorning Revealed: Photos

Confused? Dairy farms use tools to dehorn cattle, a painful procedure in which calves and cattle have their horns and horn buds cut off. That’s right—cows have their horns literally BURNED or CHOPPED OFF. These barbaric procedures are excruciatingly painful.

Don’t believe me? Want to see for yourself? OK, but be warned that the following images are graphic and difficult to look at.

These photos show exactly how painful and disturbing the process of dehorning is. If a human had that kind of gaping, bloody wound, he or she would be rushed to the hospital. However, these cattle are just left to suffer without any painkillers or veterinary care whatsoever.

The number one thing you can do to help save cows from this horrific procedure is to stop buying dairy products. Show the dairy industry that you do not support the cruel process of dehorning. Pledge to go vegan today!

      Hey Oswaldo,

      You can post as many pictures from this mission as you’d like to, but we only require you post one in order to receive points! :)

      Hey Danielle,

      We use images and video footage to show people what happens behind closed doors in factory farms and slaughterhouses. This helps people understand the reality of abuse and exploitation these animals are forced to endure day after day. We also use these images to build a strong case against a person or company and prevent them from mistreating animals.
