Ban Calf Scruffing

Calves are sweet, sensitive animals who do not deserve to be tormented by members of the public for the sake of 'entertainment'. In calf scruffing events, they are chased, have their tails pulled and are wrestled to the ground - it would be naive in the extreme to think this doesn't cause them distress.
