Letter to the Editor by Jenny Moxham: Rodeo fund-raising shame - 14 Oct 2007

Canberra Times, 14 October

Rodeo fund-raising shame

Shame, shame, shame on you, St Mary's and St Philip's. I could hardly believe my eyes when I read that the Catholic and Anglican churches were raising money from rodeos. These events subject animals to pain, terror and possible death for nothing more than human fun which is why every animal welfare organisation condemns them. At this time of the year, particularly the feast of St Francis, you should be spreading the message of love and respect for all God's creatures, not encouraging cruelty, disrespect and exploitation.

Thank God the equine flu has put a stop to it for this year.

Jenny Moxham,
Monbulk, Vic, AU
