Longtime vegan actor Casey Affleck has joined forces with People for Ethical Treatment of Animals to help end cow dehorning. In his recent public service announcement, Affleck discusses the graphic mutilation of dairy cows getting their horns removed and burned from their heads. This routine procedure performed at dairy farms involves no form of painkillers for the cow undergoing the procedure. The animal-friendly actor describes the grief that cows experience from this process and reveals that they are “thrashing, tossing their heads, rearing up, switching their tails, bellowing, and collapsing to the ground....” Affleck recommends others to exchange dairy foods and drinks for plant-based alternatives to help end cow dehorning.
