Please help me stop the dangerous and cruel bull run event that's set to take place near the Dallas area in April 2014.

I grew up in Texas and consider the Dallas area my home, so I know we're a compassionate state!  It's not a joke, the event is real and called The Great Bull Run.

You have to sign a "waiver of liability" because the organizers know that it's a crazy idea. The waiver says this event involves "stampeding animals, including bulls, steers, cattle and horses in tight spaces." If you read the fine print it even says (their caps, not mine): "THE EVENT IS A HAZARDOUS ACTIVITY..."

Does anyone think the right way to treat an animal is to surround him with screaming crowds who run around like crazies? It's a traumatic experience for these animals.

Please sign to ask the City of Ennis to stop this event. Please ask the Texas Motorplex to do its part, too. Neither of them nor the event organizers should wish such danger on human beings or animals. 

Sign and share. Thank you.
