Tell the Sears Centre that hosting events that abuse animals is unacceptable, especially for children. No more rodeos!

During a break at a Mexican rodeo at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, IL September 2011, a donkey is brought out and harassed in a repulsive attempt to "entertain" the bored audience. The poor donkey is completely passive and endures the torment that lasted over 10 minutes. The donkey never retaliated in any way.

SHARK investigators were monitoring the abuse, and now we want to make certain that it never happens again. 

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
