Protest Rodeo on "48 Hours"

From [email protected] 

A year ago, "48 Hours" was going to run a pro-rodeo story. We thought that the protests had caused CBS to cancel the show. However, the rodeo story will be aired on "48 Hours" on Friday, December 28th. Featured will be a champion calf roper. Calf roping causes most of the animal deaths in rodeo. Some stock contractors say that they lose 50% of the calves from stress and disease before they even get to the rodeo.

Currently, the International Olympic Committee is looking into the issue of the rodeo being held with the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City in February.

Please write to CBS and tell them to stop the "48 Hours" story on rodeo.
