From Show Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK)

Encourage Taylor Swift to speak out about the cruelty of rodeo and to cancel her scheduled performance at the upcoming Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. No caring performer should make money at the expense of animal being brutalized, maimed and killed.

In just a week, the 2009 Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) will begin in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The Cheyenne Frontier Days includes perhaps the most cruel and infamous rodeo in the world. The Cheyenne rodeo includes two of the most violent and indefensible events in rodeo -- steer busting and the misnamed "wild horse race."

Well-known country music star Taylor Swift is scheduled to perform during the 2009 CFD celebration. On July 1, 2009, I sent a letter to Taylor Swift's company, Taylor Swift Entertainment. The letter, which is included in this update, informed Ms. Swift of the cruelty of Cheyenne, and identified a number of entertainers who have said "No!" to the cruelty of rodeos, including Carrie Underwood, the band Matchbox Twenty and Rikki Rockett of the rock group Poison.

So far, Ms. Swift has not responded.

I hope you will write Taylor Swift a letter and/or quick email to her surrogates to encourage her to speak out about the cruelty of rodeo. No caring performer should make money at the expense of animal being brutalized, maimed and killed.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
