Default Question for Karen Winter and other Episcopalians

Elsewhere you stated that cattle have all the protection they need
under state animal welfare laws. Please refer to Texas law Title 9.
Sec. 42.09 (h) (2) which exempts animal husbandry and farming practices
from state anti-cruelty statutes. So, by your reasoning, no protection
is all the protection livestock need.

Still waiting for your reply, chico. How is the welfare of farmed
animals protected in Texas when farmers and ranchers are exempted from
state anti-cruelty statutes?

Note all the episodes of Animal Cops of Houston relating to livestock
are limited to animals that are kept as pets or as exhibit animals, not
animals in livestock operations.
