I felt the same way when a circus ( with elephants ) came to a nearby city ! I wanted to start a protest too ! If I lived in Canada by you , I'd go along with you !! Rodeos are DUMB !! The only part I'd like to see is the bull riders getting STOMPED !! ( Isn't that terrible to say ? :D
noted and petitioned signed
TY Cher
