Q: How do you feel about rodeo?

How do you feel about rodeo?

I just watched a video about the Oklahoma State Penitentiary Rodeo - it was appalling and I can't believe they are still allowed to do it. They do a "wild horse race" that is just brutal to watch and a "mad scramble" where there are several wild bulls and broncs in the arena at the same time. It is just amazing to me that they allow these convicts to brutalize animals like this and call it entertainment. I have not been to a rodeo in a while, but I really did'nt think they allowed stuff like this anymore.

I am not a fan of them. I have never been to one and don't live in an area where they are popular so thankfully I don't ever come across them. I know there are a lot of groups trying to get them banned, but unfortunately old habits and traditions are hard to get rid of. If you ever have an opportunity to let your feelings against them be known, please let people know.

Some rodeo events are fine but others are very cruel.

I don't like rodeos...put a girth strap around my ex-husband's private areas and he'd be kicking up his legs as well!
