I live in California and care about animals, so it shouldn't be surprising that I am asking California Pizza Kitchen to do something to help cows! I hope you'll help me.
Did you know that most farmers remove the sensitive horn tissue or the horns themselves from the cows' skulls using searing-hot irons, caustic chemicals, blades, or hand saws. That happens for the dairy industry!
I've read that a solution is for farmers to breed for naturally hornless cows. Just one gene can determine whether or not a cow will have horns, and this approach has proved effective in the beef industry.
I'm a supporter of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), which has shared this information with California Pizza Kitchen and asked that it require its cheese suppliers to phase out the cruel dehorning practice, but the company hasn't committed to doing anything to stop it!
When you sign this petition, California Pizza Kitchen will know that you are asking its cheese suppliers to end the practice of dehorning.
It's a simple step, but one that will help stop a lot of cruelty. Thanks, and please think about this the next time you wander by a CPK in the mall or at an airport!
