Vancouver animal-rights group protests dairy industry
A group of animal-rights activists staged a demonstration in downtown Vancouver to highlight complaints about how cows are treated by the dairy industry.
Several demonstrators gathered at the bustling corner of West Georgia and Granville streets for the noon-hour protest today (May 9).
They handed out leaflets to passersby, and one protester who was dressed in a cow costume held a sign.
With Mother's Day coming up, protest organizer Sophie Middleton said the goal was to raise awareness about cruelty toward dairy cows and their offspring.
