Rodeos represent blatant animal abuse and exploitation all in the name of ‘entertainment’. Animals used in rodeos often sustain horrific injuries including broken legs. These injuries are a death sentence for animals used in rodeos. Despite this the Northern Grampians Shire Council in Victoria, Australia chose to support a rodeo which took place on the 30th March 2018. 

BULLS AND HORSES ARE FORCED TO BUCK

Animals used in rodeos are forced to buck, a 'flank strap' is placed around the flank which is the area behind the rib cage. When the rider tightens the adjustable belt or 'flank strap' it pinches the animal’s groin and genitals, causing animals to buck from the pain.

This month (March 2018) at a rodeo in Queensland, Australia a bull suffered a broken leg while franticly bucking; the bull was put down as a result of his horrific injury.

Last year in December 2017, another bull lost his life at a rodeo in Adelaide (Australia), the bull snapped his hind leg while franticly bucking; he was put down as a result of his horrific injury.

This is what the Northern Grampians Shire supports.

A rodeo is a form of entertainment or sport where untrained horses and cattle are used to demonstrate riding and handling skills. Events include bronco riding, bull riding, calf roping and steer wrestling. The RSPCA is opposed to rodeos and rodeo schools because of the potential for significant injury, suffering or distress to the animals involved. Rodeos are held in all States in Australia except for the Australian Capital Territory where they are prohibited.
