INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

The Calgary Stampede Rodeo, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is a cruel and violent event wherein numerous animals are injured and killed annually. On February 1, 2012, the TV game show The Price is Right gave away a trip to the Calgary Stampede Rodeo as a prize.

Peter Fricker, Projects and Communications Director of the Vancouver Humane Society in Vancouver, BC states: "More than 80 animals have died at the Calgary Stampede since 1986."

Appalled that his former show was supporting animal cruelty, former host, executive producer and TV legend Bob Barker (pictured right) released the following statement to SHARK:

I am very sorry that The Price is Right producers have chosen to align themselves with an activity that is cruel and violent. Rodeo does not honor western heritage in the US, Canada or anywhere else. Rodeos torment, injure and kill animals. I hope PIR decision makers will immediately reassess their very bad decision.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
