I’m ranting about this rodeo that has got away with animal abuse for the longest time and I love going to rodeos but this rodeo is pure torture these are not my photos but this is just sad all the animals killed at every rode.

That rodeo isn’t any different from others. Unfortunately, a photographer caught some of the injuries. He probably made some money selling those pictures.

If you weren’t in the stands, you actually do not know how the animals were attended to.

These sports are based on ranch activities. Accidents happen on ranches, too.

I never heard of it, so I read a few articles to see what you were talking about. It seemed like most of the critical pieces were pretty well saturated with emotional platitudes, and even some completely unnecessary social justice plays. One of them actually had this piece of tripe, referring to when a native Hawaiian won in 1908
The 1908 outcome, though brutal for the steers involved, was a debacle for Old West white supremacy that rodeo cowboy culture spent the next 90 years trying to live down and forget.
Most of the advocacy seems to be coming from a PETAesque group called SHARK.

Admittedly, I don’t know enough about it after 15 or 20 minutes reading, but my ignorant assumption would be that cowboy sport is pretty rough, all around, and I’ve come to not take the word of activists (of any flavor) at face value.

Yeah I’m not an activist I just feel bad that one they made a horse buck who was obviously hurt like that’s warning one ! But other than that I’m definitely not a activist cause I don’t care much for what happens at rodeos unless its Ridiculous.

I totally understand your dilemma. I was at a rodeo nearby last week and a calf got hurt. The calf was ok but it was iffy for a while. Also, 2 contestants were hurt also. I go to the next one in 2 weeks. It does happen but rest assured, they do everything they can to minimize the damage to both people and animal.

I admit, I have never been to Cheyenne rodeo. Cant speak for them. Just for the ones in Texas. Different breeders and different rodeo sponsors may have differing views.

I cant imagine one wanting to hurt animals on purpose though as that would cause ticket sale losses. That one calf had over half the people there holding their breath until he got up. One thing I know is certain about rodeos. Some people root for the riders but most root for the animals.

I've seen worse things happen to people than to animals at rodeos. I once saw a bronc fall onto his rider and crush him to bits... he was hospitalized and was lucky to survive.

Personally, I'm not concerned whatsoever because these photos are the exception not the norm.

Rodeo animals, especially bulls and horses are expensive so they get treated very well most of the time.
I hate to see anyone intentionally abuse an animal, but accidents happen.
The horse with the injured hoof above, I'd bet good money it got injured after the gate was open. Probably caught it on something, and you can bet the problem was found and corrected.
I doubt they'd deliberately buck an injured horse, if for no other reason than they are valuable animals.

If you are not an activist, why are you disseminating propaganda for activists?

There are more horses injured by feely good horse lovers than by rodeos. Nutritional injury is just as painful and deadly, and much more widespread.So why don't we go full AR and advocate freeing all the horses, and we will stop driving so we don't spook them, and we will go vegan, and then realizing we are stealing their food, we can all jump off cliffs?

barnbilder, stop being mean to the child. She is still in school. You are treating her like she is 30 or 40.

Oh dear... where to start?

First off - the first horse you are talking about in pics 2, 3 & 4 are not even the same horse!! It is easy to tell by it's coloring. If you are lying to us about that (and it is a lie) what else is untrue about your post? Probably most if not all of it.

Secondly - You hang up a dishonest and inflammatory post and then cry for no one to say mean things about you. Stuff it.
