Raising awareness about the animal abuse that is committed regularly in certain rodeo sports (primarily timed roping) and supporting the SHARK organization, which stands at the forefront of this issue
Rodeo involves undeniable animal cruelty.
Join this cause if you would like to learn more or if you are simply against the rodeo.
We primarily support the SHARK organization (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness).
Here's a brief introduction to rodeo cruelty:
A collection of over 140 YouTube videos by SHARK and other users:
Rodeo has become utterly detached from authentic ranching practices, rendering it irrelevant to Western culture and history. Unlike "life on the ranch", rodeo has developed irrelevant games that value speed and aggressive competition. Consequently, there is usually little to no sense of animal welfare.
Among the mild to severe abuse that "wild horses", grown cattle (bucking bulls), and other livestock receive, timed roping of young calves and steer remains the most abusive sport within the rodeo.
