In Reference to: The Animal Hell That is the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo
Just watch the video of Strawberry Fudge and read about the recent horse deaths. I have gone to one rodeo in my life and that was enough. No deaths that I was aware of but the brutal way the calves are treated...I am speechless.
I am a horse owner. I have show-jumpers and they are treated better than most people, which makes the abuse of rodeo animals even less understandable.
We never turn out a horse with a halter on to avoid having it get caught on anything. And then I read that the mare died when another horse stepped on her lead during a race!!! The people that run the rodeo and the people who supply the animals should all be prosecuted for animal cruelty.
RIP Strawberry Fudge and all the others.
