Call to cut out tail docking

ANIMAL rights activists will take their campaign to ban tail docking of dogs to the Scottish Parliament tomorrow.

Green MSP Robin Harper will join campaigners from Advocates for Animals to lobby parliament to get a stop to the process of removing tails from puppies.

The Scottish Executive is considering a ban on docking. Advocates' campaigner Alexis Lacy said: "We are encouraging the public to support our campaign by contacting their MSPs urging them to support the Executive's proposed ban on tail docking.
