South Africa: SPCA Calls for SA Rodeos to Be Banned

Animals  (tags: cruelty, animals )

- 1968 days ago -
There is nothing good to say about the Rodeo. Any event held at a Rodeo has elements of animal abuse and cruelty. These animals are sourced from surrounding farms and all this causes stress to frighten an animal - a form of animal abuse.

Agreed...and this from one who used to love rodeo, as well as competed in gymkana within some rodeos themselves.

Vile foul and disgusting - what on earth are they up to allowing such cruelty to animals in South Africa? Prosecute them for cruelty to animals and make the sentencing custodial!!

Thanks Jill, Rodeo's are disgusting and should have been banned a long time ago it is just another case of animal abuse plain and simple and should be stopped everywhere.

Everything that we humans do to animals weather it is circuses, rodeo's etc that inflicts harm to an animal should all be banned as this is cruelty to innocent beings! Animals are not here to entertain humans. Thanks Jill.

Thanks. All rodeos should be banned. Animals are often mistreated and horses who don't make the cut are shipped off to slaughter. Every year during the Calgary Stampede horses are shipped to Ontario for slaughter....just bloody sad fo these animals.

As far as I'm concerned all animals should be kept out of all forms of human entertainment! Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Jill. We have the Calgary Stampede over in Alberta every year. The death count just gets higher and higher. It should've been banned a lonnnnnng time ago.
