Cruelty to animals.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

For a long time I have suspected that some dairy farmers in Australia have been shortening (“docking”) the tails of dairy cows but yesterday, having seen that, in a 1500 strong herd of Holsteins in China all the tails were “docked”, my suspicions are confirmed not only where Australia is concerned but worldwide.

Depriving the animals of a, to them, vital tool – that of fly swatter, is cruel because without a tail they are like humans would be if they, humans, were unable to wave their hand in front of their face to drive off flies. The result is, of course, stress!

He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural.
