INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Animals Asia is trying to stop the rodeo industry from expanding into China. Like SHARK, Animals Asia believes rodeos are a cruel form of entertainment and do not wish to see them being promoted within China.

Animals Asia states:

A rodeo stadium was built in the Daxing District of Beijing in 2004 but, due to complaints from several congress representatives and many animal lovers, Daxing governors stopped the rodeo.

However, after seven years, the rodeo is planning to be there in October 2011.
