VICTORY UPDATE April 2013 - Macy's No Longer Sponsoring Salinas Rodeo
On Friday, July 19, 2013, SHARK filmed a horrific incident at the California Rodeo in Salinas, CA, where, during the bull dogging/steer wrestling event, a steer was killed when he was trampled by a horse.
Please contact Macy's corporate executive office and ask
them to immediately withdraw all support for the California Rodeo Salinas.
Please also email Macy's executives and send them this picture. Let them know that their name is stained with the cruelty and death committed in Salinas. Tell them that you are joining a boycott of Macy's and will never shop at their stores as long as they sponsor cruel rodeos.
INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Macy's is sponsoring the California Rodeo Salinas. We asked you to write to them and ask them to stop sponsoring animal cruelty. Instead of doing anything at all, this is what they said:
Macy's takes great pride in supporting the communities and events important to the residents where we conduct business. In that spirit, we are pleased to be a part of the California Rodeo Salinas. Macy's supports the rodeo's commitment to livestock safety and welfare, including ensuring the proper medical services on site to ensure prompt and professional care if any injuries occur. We appreciate hearing the feedback from our customers, and we will continue to monitor the situation.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
