Rodeo has been a very popular sport all over the world as far back as 1869. The sport consists of horses and other livestock, (bulls) it is created to test the skill and speed of how long cowboys and cowgirls can stay on the animal until they fall off the animal. This consists of tie-down roping, team roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, bareback bronc riding, bull riding and barrel racing. 

On Saturday night, the 9th of December a bull had SNAPPED he’s back legs due to a rodeo event and eventually DIED at Adelaide entertainment centre and now the RSPCA are demanding to have this sport band.

This is seen as ‘entertainment’ to large audiences all around the world. My question is why do riders eventually fall from the animal? Because they buck. And why do they buck? Because they feel threatened, they feel anger, torture the list could go on. This IS animal abuse and nothing less. I feel sick to my stomach knowing that individuals get a huge kick out of watching an animal being forced to have someone ride them until they are so angry and so sore that their only self defence is to buck and people literally PAY to see an animal struggle for its own safety. 

I personally do not believe anything positive comes out of this sport and obviously many people will disagree. I only strongly urge people to sign this petition that see sense in my argument I will not condone any abusive comments within this petition this is being written simply to see a positive and cruelty free future for all animals.

My sense of entertainment is seeing animals free and happy not forced into something they do not have the choice to do. Please think hard about the impact this sport can have on these innocent animals. Animals are not a form of cruel entertainment. Please share as much as possible to make a stand to end this cruelty!
