Queanbeyan Rodeo Animal Abuse

By mos - 12 March 2013 26

rodeo

On Saturday, Mar 9, the annual Queanbeyan Charity Rodeo was held. The rodeo was attended by several members of Animal Liberation ACT who captured the images in my blog post.

Rodeos are bad enough in the way they routinely treat animals but these behind the scenes videos and pics show clear abuse of animals. Blog post

I know for a fact that every animal involved in a rodeo wants to be there…. Besides the horses used for barrel racing, they hate that s*** as much as the crowd.

The real problem with the QBN rodeo… Beer was not free in the vip marque.

Quite a surprising number of big companies are withdrawing sponsorship from rodeos as the footage and facts get airplay. Fact is, I think as a society we’re moving on from tormenting animals for sport. It’s heartening the way people do respond with revulsion when they see beyond the popular images to what’s reallly going on. There’s better ways to have fun.

Rodeos are a good way for us in the ACT to marvel at the small town hicks who surround us. Taking away their rodeos will rob us of the opportunity to feel smugly superior.

The photo above shows a real tough guy picking on an innocent little cow for fun :(. I would find it more impressive if he had tried that on the heifer in the background. The one in the blue shirt.

Speaking of animal cruelty I saw this the other day thought it was pretty nasty. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6v_I9fnDbTs

Wow, I have never been to a rodeo, and now never will,

I have seen a bit of bull riding on tv and in movies, but I had never given them much thought and certainly had not thought of them in a bad light before, but the the calf gets torn out of it’s full pelt run by the lasso was pretty terrible, the thowing it down not so much but still not good.

The link from Even James, with the bull breaking it’s leg, yes the bull wouldn’t of being hurt if not for the rodeo and probably/possibly was treated cruelly in the lead up, but i couldn’t say the broken leg was direct cruelty.

Just Possibly ACT animal lib could stick to THEIR side of the friggin border, not venture out into the real world where real people live, and let NSW welfare look after their rodeo animals.

Ah ‘real people’ … I fvcking hate ‘real people’. From what I’ve been told, they’re all braindead savages.

I’m just waiting for someone to say ‘all this animal welfare bizzo … it’s political correctness gone mad!’.

Rodeos – where real people hurt animals for $hits & giggles!

(I couldn’t watch the video linked in the blog … after watching some footage of rodeos in the past, I find stuff like that distressing, although probably not as much as the animals do).

Look, it keeps the country yokels amused.

FFS, do you really expect them to understand that there is more to enjoying yourself than hurting small animals and pretending you are a cowboy? Next you’ll be expecting them to go to cinemas, travel on escalators and watch TV, rather than congregate in hordes and listen to both kinds of music, while living out an American cliche’ which existed for a short time.

These are country folk, they don’t even know Elvis is dead, they don’t like change..

I assume the plan is to forward the images to the NSW Police and RSPCA?

Wouldn’t waste time with the RSPCA- ask Wally’s pigs..

There’s no two ways about it, If you go to rodeos you’re a deadbeat who considers the cruelty and tangible fear of animals as ‘entertainment’.

I hope this gets passed to the relevant authorities and animal welfare bodies.

I’m glad someone went to the rodeo and represented the many who are sickened by animal cruelty. The footage and facts coming out of rodeos, including this one, is disgusting.

Watch this, recent footage taken in Australia, and get back to us about what “real people” should do.

Just possibly people could get their heads out of their arses and do something about animal cruelty.
