How do you even need research to know for a fact – that what happens at rodeo's is terrifying and cruel to the animals 🙁

You shouldn’t take the rodeo away from these horses that love it all you’ll have is another Horse going to slaughter for dog food. People cannot feasibly take care of that many animals that are in rodeo. And the bulls will be hamburger meat. But I guess that’s better for you guys. You really have no idea about the rodeo scene. Calfroping I can see you all having an issue but Bareback, Saddlebronc, bull riding, bell racing. The animals are bred for it and they love it

Signed up … there is absolutely no need for this kind of abusive “entertainment” 😥

When I was 12 years old my dad took the family to Calgary stampede. During the chuckwagon races a few horses went down and one broke it’s leg. I started crying then they shot it and the rodeo went on. I am now 68 and I will never ever forget it. I think I was the only one crying for that horse. I demanded dad to take me back to the campground and I never went back. I refused to go to circus events. My parents tried to give me excuses why this and that. It’s only an animal was one of them but I was done. My girls never went to events like this neither…… they r both vegan and so am I. Signed. And I will share

Are we STILL talking about this Government Sanctioned ANIMAL ABUSE !!!!!!! Bloody Well BAN it NOW !!!!! DAM politicians don’t give a SHIT about the animals…..all these SCUM care about is Profiting while at the Public Tax Trough and Doing as Little as they can get away with….. BAN it NOW TURDEAU !!!!!!!

Wow. More ignorant pandering on the stong issues. Eat a steak an grow up. Humanity isn't as humane as you'd like? Suck it uo buttercup. Learn that the only way niceness can exist is with unkindness. Otherwise it means nothing. If we get rid of things you deem cruel, there will be no comparable bad. Everything is perfect life sucks. You think its cruel? Maybe it is. Do you recommend all children born c section? Should all mothers be sedated for birth and the child cut out instead of the "cruelty" over her most intimate parts being ripped open? Graphic, yes but I can think of few who opt for the "less cruel option" you morons ruined the circus already with these moronic escapades. Please. Stop with this garbage. You have no qualms about feeding said horses to your dog. (If you do then we've got deeper issues I won't even attempt to explain) grow up. Life is supposed to have good and bad. Try to fix the bad you never look the good. Think about that. If YOU TRY TO FIX SOMETHING YOU ARE OBSESSED. Should anyone be obsessed with what they feel is wrong or should they seek counciling?

What century do we live in. When do we STOP EXPLOITING ANIMALS.
