Stampedes and Rodeos = Animal Cruelty

It used to be said that horses had fun at a rodeo or a stampede, that this was what they would be doing when in the wild. But nowadays people should know better. Many animals are injured during these spectacles, some die painful deaths.

“Every summer, the issue of animals in the Stampede and other rodeos comes up. The horses that pull chuckwagons sometimes drop dead of heart attacks, are killed or injured, or have to be euthanized, due to collisions or other accidents.”

Please avoid any kind of summer attraction claiming animals were having fun, too. This barely ever is a true statement.
