Tell CBS to stop airing the abusive National Finals Rodeo
Action Alert from


SHARK Showing Animals Respect and Kindness
December 2017


SHARK is condemning CBS for once again airing the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) after we exposed horses being electroshocked at the 2016 rodeo. Evidence of cruelty from that rodeo, which aired on the CBS Sports channel, can be seen HERE.

A clip from the video shows a horse in the chute being shocked...

SHARK's video, which went viral, has been viewed more than 90,000 times. An accompanying petition calling on CBS to stop airing the rodeo has received more than 11,700 signatures. However, CBS has shamefully refused to respond to the fact that horses are being hurt so they can sell advertising (CBS is actually being paid to air the NFR).

We’ve already witnessed new incidents of horses being electro-shocked at the 2017 rodeo, which started airing this past weekend. It is disgraceful that CBS has ignored the cruelty and remained silent in the face of great public opposition to this brutality.

Please call and write CBS asking them to stop airing this cruel rodeo!
