“Haven’t we all got more important things to worry about?”
That’s what an editorial in the Merced (Calif.) Sun-Star asks about the lawsuit filed by an animal-rights group against the California “Happy Cows” advertising campaign.
According to the Sun Star’s editorial, which appeared March 28, the animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals seems more interested in publicity than in the welfare of livestock – or human beings.
Following a court order, dairy farmers on the California Milk Advisory Board have been desposed to give testimony. PETA has asked the commodity board to provide evidence that cows are comfortable, safe and happy.
A judge is scheduled to hear further arguments on May 25.
