I was wondering why bull riding is still considered a " sport " for some people?

I think bull riding is very cruel. I don't understand why more animal groups haven't protested against it. The bulls are scared, angry and in pain. Why can't people just leave them alone. I don't think it makes you look macho just stupid.

What at one time seems "normal" or sporting, in another time and place is considered cruel. As long as people have the luxury, with their own well-being assured, of being concerned about animals, attitudes regarding treatment of anaimals will gradually change. If no great catastrophe befalls the earth and humankind, there probably will come a day when people will hardly believe that animals were hunted, killed, and EATEN!!

I don’t know why anyone would consider it a sport. A sport is something that everyone enjoys and does voluntarily. A bull does not volunteer or enjoy bull riding. He bucks because he is in pain.
