Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. People who mistreat animals for their own gratification are on the same level as those , who abuse children and the elderly, they are at the mercy of the many two legged things that roam our earth.

Jonathan Collier -- so the horses that had to be put down weren't mistreated? If you think roping animals or breaking colts does not hurt, then let me do onto you what is done on to a male bronco who is being "broken" in. Inform yourself, here: http://www.idausa.org/facts/rodeos.html

Poor Jonathan. How many concussions have you suffered so far, in the name of "fun"? Roping is a necessary practice on a ranch, it is completely wrong to turn it into a timed event, where the welfare of the animal becomes less important than the prize to be won.

What kind of man would rope a calf in this manner? Someone who is trying to prove that he is a 'HE-MAN', when in fact he is a coward to do this to a baby. I know this so-called sport has been around for generations, but it doesn't make it right. I read a few of the comments and unfortunately, it sounds like there are alot sick people, but then again this doesn't surprise me. Usually, animal abusers have no intelligence what-so-ever and talking to them is like talking to a brick wall. They just can't comprehand what is being said to them.

For me, this quote should be shown to and memorized by people.

I have been studying the traits and dispositions of the "lower animals" (so called) and contrasting them with the traits and dispositions of man. I find the result humiliating to me.

You are absolutely right Hector. There are alot of women roping these innocent calfs as well. I guess they are trying to prove that they are 'SHE-MAN' too. And, they are just as sick as the men abusing these calfs. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

This inhumane practice makes as much sense as bullfighting does - NONE!!! All it is is a cruel way for someone to prove their power over innocent, helpless creatures who aren't able to defend themselves. This and all other cruel, inhumane practices involving animals or children MUST be stopped!!!

I so agree with what Fran Stetka Kolpack stated. I am sure I will "offend" some of my "friends" to whom I sent this to who find nothing wrong with cruelty to a calf but get all worked up about cruelty to pets. All living beings deserve respect and kindness.

Jonathan Collier what better way is there to show respect than starting with those animals that can't defend themselves, throughout history, the greatest cruelty has been dished out by the human species. I hope you don't have a pet.

I live in Houston, Tx and when I went to the rodeo, a long while back, this was one of the events I had seen. It made me sick to my stomach I couldn't bare to watch any longer, I was there for about 5min. I got up and left the arena. I love animals and when I saw this it made me feel really bad that I couldn't do anything about it. I am glad that now there is a petition regarding the possible ban of this "sport" and that there are so many people who feel the same way as I do about calf roping.

Just because you cant see it doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Watch Food Inc. Tyson Chicken is way more common than rodeos. (that's a single example of a bad meat packing company). Why would you sign a petition one way with your hands and make a different vote with your stomach?

This is a sad example of human beings exerting their power and will over helpless innocent animals in the name of entertainment. How anyone with a heart and soul could find this cruelty entertaining is beyond me. It doesn't say much for that segment of our society does it?

Jonathan Collier So this isn't cruelty in your eye's then? if it happened to you, would it be cruel then? Please answer with honesty,,,, you un - empathetic devil, get a grip won't you. It's uneducated attitudes like yours that instigate these cruel out dated so called Traditions to carrie on. CRUELTY IS NOT TRADITION, ITS CRUELTYYY,,,,NO YOUR THE ONE THATS WRONG.

You go girl! I couldn't have put it better. Unfortunately there are way too many people out there with attitude's like Jonathan. How would you like it Jonathan if we put you in a ring helpless and scared and roped and mistreated you like this? What would you think then? Grow up....cruelty of any kind whether it be to animals, children or any living thing is wrong and the offenders should be punished.

I hope this petition makes a difference.The calf's are victims of a senseless, cruel and humane act, that has no place in society today.We have come to far as a culture, to engage in this disgusting sport for entertainment.The people who engage in this sport, or go to view the sport are just as guilty.Everyone needs to be educated, although the people in this sport probably never went to school, and to make matters worse, they don't have a conscience, love, or compassion towards animals.They...

The world we are in now consists of people trying to better as a human race, shut down these arenas.
