Animals Australia has investigated rodeos across the country, witnessing countless animals frightened, distressed, and put at grave risk of injury or even death. Rodeos have been banned in the ACT, UK and elsewhere, for cruelty. Yet, they continue in most states of Australia.
As clearly depicted in the video, in rodeos, horses, bulls and steers aregoaded into ‘wild’ behaviour, and frightened calves are bullied and tormented. All this in the name of ‘entertainment’. Cultures the world over are recognising that tradition is no excuse for animal cruelty. It’s time to put rodeos out to pasture.
Stand up for these animals by sending a letter to your local MP urging them to support a ban on rodeos.
