California Pizza Kitchen: Require Suppliers to Stop Dehorning Cows

      Beverly Hills, CA

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!

Your company has learned about the cruelty of burning hot irons into calves' heads or gouging developing horns out of their skulls as well as the proven solution of breeding for naturally hornless, or "polled," cows.
I'll tell all my friends and family about this cruelty you support until CPK helps to stop this unnecessary suffering.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Just like people, many animals are highly intelligent and sense emotions, including cows. We as humans need to treat these animals with kindness and respect even more so because we use them for our own purpose.

      Cruelty on animals has no place in industry or any other place for that matter.

      There is no need to subject these gentle animals to this barbaric treatment.

      To hurt and terrorize these poor babies is extremely cruel and I will not patronize your stores until this has stopped.
