US: Singer Pink changes mulesing standpoint
Pop star Pink said she didn't carry out enough research before joining a boycott of Australia's wool industry, according to press reports.
Pink had signed up to a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) campaign, which is against sheep mulesing, which involves removing strips of wool-bearing wrinkle skin from around the tail of a sheep to prevent flystrike, as reported by just-style.
The campaign Pink has backed out of suggested Australia was one of the main culprits of mulesing.
