Smashing Pumpkins founder and frontman Billy
Corgan is the latest star to speak out against the cruel practice of dehorning cattle.
Billy is calling on California
Pizza Kitchen
to make the responsible and ethical decision to demand that its cheese
suppliers stop this barbaric mutilation.

Instead of using
these excruciating dehorning methods, farmers can instead breed for naturally
hornless, or “polled,” cattle. Just as farmers select for traits such
as coat color, they can select for the hornless gene. And since a single gene
determines whether a cow will have horns and the polled gene is dominant over
the horned gene, with selective breeding new generations of cows can be born
without the gene for horns.

Several
other companies have taken steps to eliminate dehorning, and Billy urges California Pizza Kitchen to follow suit. He is one of several
celebrities, including Ryan
Gosling
 and Casey Affleck, who want to see an end to this painful, and unnecessary mutilation immediately.

Billy
is no stranger to raising his voice to protect animals. He’s been a staunch
supporter of PETA’s Kentucky
Fried Cruelty
 campaign and PETA Asia’s campaign to free Mali

What You Can Do

Please join Billy Corgan in writing to California Pizza
Kitchen
 and urging the company to require its cheese suppliers
to stop dehorning.
