Madison Square Garden is hosting The Cowboy Channel's Rodeo event in June of 2020. As it is, MSG hosts the Professional Bull Riders' event every year in January, and every year there are protests against that event. Now, MSG is taking their support of animal cruelty and torture to another level -- by hosting an actual full blown rodeo, the first one in NYC since 1991. A rodeo is far worse then bull riding, and involves far more torture. Examples of rodeo acts are: calf roping, barrel racing, saddle bronc, team roping, steer wrestling, and tie down roping. These are nothing more than horrific acts of violence towards defenseless terrified animals, many of whom are mere babies ripped from their mothers.

Fractures and other extremely serious injuries are common occurrences; some animals get killed in the event, or must be euthanized after due to the severity of their agonizing injuries. In addition to their physical injuries, they are subjected to mental torment and terror. The notion that animal torture and violence is "entertainment" must be abolished. MSG should be ashamed of itself, and it should NOT HOST THIS EVENT. Tell MSG, CANCEL THE RODEO EVENT.  Animal torture and terror is NOT entertainment!
