STOP Rodeos at Eatons Hill Hotel and Function Centre

This petition had 971 supporters

Animals simply do not belong in entertainment. Rodeos and other animal acts are not only cruel to animals, they are dangerous for the human participants and onlookers.

It takes a lot of abuse to get a bull so riled up that he jumps, kicks, and flails. Bulls live a life of constant stress and abuse. They are beaten, starved, and confined in tight pens. Rodeo riders often prod the bull's testicles with electric shock sticks before mounting them. While the riders make a voluntary decision to risk their safety by participating in a rodeo, the animals have no such choice.

In addition to the blatant cruelty and torture that the animals are subject to, rodeo participants risk severe injury and even death.

What kind of lessons are child spectators learning ? Rodeos are nothing but macho displays of human domination over animals. Kids are being taught that is it acceptable to abuse animals for fun.

We urge you to please stop holding rodeos at your venue immediately.
