REGINA, Sask. — Two Saskatchewan ranchers didn’t know what they were getting themselves into when they vowed not to cut their hair until the U.S. re-opened its border to Canadian cattle.
Miles Anderson and Jay Fitzpatrick haven’t had a hair cut in more than a year, but they admit they expected the border ban would only last a few months when they began their unusual protest, the Canadian Press reports.
The ranchers admit they are getting tired of maintaining their long locks, however they insist they will not cut it until the border re-opens. The border has been closed to Canadian cattle since May, 2003. The ban was supposed to have been lifted in March, but a U.S. judge ordered the ban to continue.
