"…Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others."*
It's payback time for those lederhosen and Dirndls!
[Bavaria and Austria are not the same, Harrison--AHM.]
Okay, okay. But those Austrians are no slackers when it comes to--ah--unleashing deranged people and policies on the world. They gave us Adolf Hitler, didn't they? But this bit of legislation takes the liver treat.
I know this is old news, but after this story, I had to post about it.
The [new] anticruelty law, one of Europe’s harshest, will ban pet owners from cropping their dogs’ ears or tails, force farmers to uncage their chickens, and ensure that puppies and kittens no longer swelter in pet shop windows.
Good idea about the pet shop laws--get rid of the outlet for those effin' puppy mills.
But how long before we start hearing stories about a rash of "back alley" croppings?
And uncaged chickens? Sounds like a fox smorgasbord to me.

[Smorgasbord is Scandinavian, remember? And smoked eels gave you gas--AHM.[
[Did not. That was Heddy. Everything gave her gas. The California EPA wanted to emissions test her--H.]
Damn Heddy's lucky we're not in California any more.
Air quality regulators want to reduce pollution from cows.
"Air quality regulators are proposing what they say would be the first attempt in the country to regulate pollution from cow manure.
"Cows in Southern California dairies, especially around the farm community of Chino, produce 1 million tons of manure every year, according to the South Coast Air Quality Management District, which is proposing the new rules."
