Horse Abuse at 2012 Cheyenne Rodeo
Big Loop Rodeo Loses a Major Sponsor!
When SHARK released videos exposing the brutal and violent Jordan Valley Big Loop Rodeo in Oregon, not only was the debate to ban horse tripping reignited, but we put pressure on sponsors to no longer support such animal cruelty.
A few days ago, we received a phone call from the Communications Specialist for Idaho Power Company, one of the major sponsors of the rodeo. He said the following:
A horse is brutally roped at the Big Loop Rodeo
"We have no pending or future sponsorship commitments to the Big Loop Rodeo. We are pursuing other ways to support the community of Jordan Valley."
We want to thank all of you who wrote and called Idaho Power. Thanks to your efforts, they saw the light!
"Frustrated" Owner Shoots Horse, then Brings Him to CFD
From KGWN TV:
"Jimmy Siler, the Law Enforcement Administrator for the Wyoming Livestock Board, said Peterson admitted he was getting frustrated with his horse trying to put it in the trailer. So he took out his gun and shot at it. The owner said he was planning on taking it to the vet the next day."
"Kindness and compassion towards all living beings is a mark of a civilized society. Racism, economic deprival, dog fighting and cock fighting, bullfighting and rodeos are all cut from the same fabric: violence. Only when we have become nonviolent towards all life will we have learned to live well ourselves." - Cesar Chavez, civil rights and labor leader, founder of the United Farm Workers
