St. Louis – Today, Budweiser agreed to stop docking the tails of the Budweiser Clydesdales—a practice exposed by a PETA investigation. Below, please find a statement from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo:

PETA’s staff are cracking open some cold ones today to celebrate that Budweiser is cutting out the cruelty by agreeing to stop painfully severing horses’ tailbones. This victory comes after dozens of PETA protests, nationwide ad campaigns, and pleas from more than 121,000 concerned consumers, and it sends a message to other companies that animal abuse doesn’t sell.

Tailbone amputation for cosmetic reasons is condemned by the American Veterinary Medical Association and American Association of Equine Practitioners and is illegal in 10 states and a number of countries, as it prevents horses from engaging in natural activities such as swatting away disease-carrying insects and using their tails to communicate.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, or Instagram.
