*THE FOLLOWING POST DOES NOT RELATE TO MARINE MAMMALS, BUT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE WELFARE OF ANIMALS*
Rodeos… Getting the family together to take a trip to watch people clothesline a baby animal, body slam it to the ground, tie its legs so it can’t move, and finally dragging it by the neck… just another good ol’ time, right? WRONG.
The myth of Rodeos is that it’s nothing more than a bunch of men having fun with animals. The myth of a rodeo is that the animals are treated great (as any animal abusing business would say). The myth of a rodeo is that the animals NEVER get hurt and that they are trained to do what they do. Really? You would have to be a hospitalized type of redneck to believe that these poor animals are deliberately trained to fall when a rope slings around their neck. It may be just me, but that might hurt a little as well.
The TRUTH of Rodeos is sickening really. When its boiled down of all the lies and cover-ups, rodeos are a sport where men/women like to really show their act of dominance in their actions of abusing, torturing, injuring, and sometimes killing innocent animals for none other than— money. Greed.
But how could a sport such as a rodeo survive in this world? Corporations are giving sponsorships to rodeos, therefore supporting the abuse! Corporates who want to make a profit, and will make it no matter the cost! These companies include Wrangler, Coca-Cola, Daimler Chrysler, Jack Daniels and more! In return for these ‘generous’ backings, rodeos suck up to these companies to keep the backing going! This should be embarrassing to the companies! These companies are SUPPORTING this TORTURE for profit, despite the evidence of death and injury… A shameful thought, and a shameful act. This is exactly what these companies are giving money to…
Send the above companies messages telling to end their support to the rodeo… Let them hear your voices. Let them know you will boycott them unless these acts of injustice are undone.
For those of you who don’t feel there is anything wrong with a rodeo because you don’t think the animals are hurt, ANY ANIMAL EXPLOITATION IS WRONG. For those of you who don’t believe a rodeo is animal exploitation, ANY EVENT THAT HUMANS USE ANIMALS TO MAKE MONEY FOR IS WRONG. For those of you who don’t think there is anything wrong with abusing animals out of greed, GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT.
BOYCOTT BACKING COMPANIES AND END THIS MADNESS. STOP THE RODEO. STOP THE ABUSE. STOP THE PAIN. STOP THE DEATH.
