A sick rodeo forces mules to high-dive into a pool of water. The two terrified animals are forced with a whip up a steep ramp to a ledge. Crowds cheer as the helpless creatures, called Smokey and Dipsy Doodle, are sent plunging from a 22ft high platform into the 6ft deep pool. Billed as the world's only high-diving mule show, it is the climax of a rodeo in the tiny ranch town of Pipe Creek, near San Antonio, Texas.

The show's boss Bill Rivers claims they enjoy it. He said: "If they didn't like it, they wouldn't do it."
Shockingly, cops and local authorities in the town have NOT deemed the show cruel, and allowed it to continue.
