Gay rodeo - 'Access Hollywood'

Yesterday (Feb. 6) 'ACCESS HOLLYWOOD' an entertainment show on NBC (check local listings) featured a glowing puff piece on the 'Gay Rodeo,' due to the supposed popularity of the film BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (it is about two gay cowboys and features rodeo footage).  Anchor Shaun Robinson talked to the rodeo purveyors like they were heros, instead of the animal abusers that they are.  

Rodeo is blatant animal cruelty in which terrified babies are yanked off their feet, smashed to the ground and their feet are tied together; cowboy savages jump on animals' head and twist their necks till they crash to the ground; frightened animals are shocked, hit with poles, have their tails twisted, before a strap near their genitals is yanked, to make them 'buck.' Please contact Shaun Robinson and remind her there are innocent victims that she forgot to mention in her 'glowing' piece on the gay rodeo (for information on rodeos, visit , or , click CAMPAIGNS - STOP RODEOS).
