Another Frivolous Lawsuit ā€“ Brought To You By PETAphiles

Are California cows happy cows? Not according to the folks at PETA, who sued to stop a series of popular commercials for California cheeses.

The ads showed cows in spacious pastures on rolling hills.

They were challenged in a false advertising lawsuit in San Francisco Superior Court by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, based in Norfolk, Va.

PETA claimed that most California cows are actually unhappy and spend their lives in dry, grassless dirt lots.

Iā€™m curious ā€“ how did they determine whether or not the cows were happy? Did they do exit polling?
