Tell American Airlines to STOP Sponsoring Rodeos
[Ed. Note: Watch Rodeo People Love Animals???.]
Tell American Airlines to STOP using their financial power to promote animal abuse at rodeos. They are currently sponsoring Cheyenne Frontier Days.
INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
In 2010, the Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) Rodeo is proving once again to be one of the most cruel in the world. SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) has exposed phony rodeo humane rules, and will again expose the rodeo world for gross abuse.
In early July 2010, SHARK challenged CFD about a supposed "no-jerk-down" rule it boasted on its website. A jerk-down is a cruel and dangerous method of roping a calf straight over backwards. In response, CFD quietly removed the boast from its site. Sure enough, SHARK investigators have filmed plenty of jerkdowns on the very first day, and one of them injured a calf to the point she had to be carried out of the arena. Other victims were left senseless and shaken.

Corporate sponsors of CFD rodeo cruelty include American Airlines, Coca-Cola, Dodge and Sonic.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
