    Hey everyone! So I`ve been seeing a lot about companies that are dehorning dairy cows .. and i`m just wondering WHY they do this ..Like why do these companies think they should dehorn the cattle? . is it because they could be threatening to the workers or is it to just traumatize them? Either way , I know it is wrong .. but if someone could let me know , then it would be very helpful =)

    Hey @Jasmine-lee,

    In modern factory farms, cows are kept in unnatural, stressful, and confined environments and are put in positions where they feel the need to defend themselves, so their horns are destroyed to prevent them from using these horns. Remember that the best way that you can help is by going vegan and asking everyone you know to do the same!

    P.S. LOVE your avatar pic. :)

    I've loved animals since I was really little. I've had pets my whole life and I can't imagine why anyone would ever want to hurt an innocent animal.

    I am proud to be weird! My pride and joy is Popsicle, my precious baby, a Blue-tongued Skink. (Sub-species: Irian Jaya) Popsicle and I spend hours together each day, I take him outside and around the house! He goes to the bathroom outside, (potty-trained, whooo!) and explores as he pleases. I let him on my head and in my bed, I do not fear Salmonella and kiss him liberally. He recognizes me, and whenever I drop my hand into his tank he crawls on for an adventure! I also love my kitty and dog, but Popsicle is my most devoted animal companion! :)
