WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. (AP) - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has apologized after graphic animal cruelty images were distributed to students at a Southern California elementary school.

The Daily News says (https://bit.ly/1ncnpHm) parents at Calabash Charter Academy in Woodland Hills were outraged when PETA volunteers outside the school distributed comics with photo inserts of bulls being de-horned and an infected udder on a dairy cow.

The protest was organized in response to the school’s bringing a cow to school as part of a lesson plan about dairy farming.

In a letter, the animal-rights group said the more graphic images were intended for parents, not students.

PETA said the volunteers made a mistake in distributing those materials to kids, but stopped short of apologizing for the protest.

PETA offered to distribute dairy-free ice cream sandwiches on campus as part of the mea culpa.
