Bullriding is a cruel sport

Published in AM NEW YORK  6/26:

June 27, 2006

Thank you so much Kiley Blackman ('Bullriding harms animals') for telling the truth about bullriding. In addition to the disturbing points you made, isn't it true that the brave 'cowboys' also disable the animal with alcohol-laced swabs in the nostrils and vaseline in their eyes?

Or am I confusing one brand of torture with another, namely bullfighting?

Encouraging or supporting either of these abusive 'sports' is saying "yes" to cruelty.
