Live Kindly reported in September last year, that the country banned docking the tails of cows and dogs. The dairy owners liked to dock cows. Some dogs are docked just because it's fashionable to do so. Both of these practices are now banned in the country. They also reported that "Cattle disbudding, the removal of horn buds in calves, and dehorning without pain relief will also be prohibited under the new 45 regulations, which will be implemented in October."
