Queanbeyan Rodeo Animal Abuse

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

Objecting to animal cruelty means you have to be vegan?

Many of us don’t accept that using animals for food should come with cruelty. We’re a civilised, modern country. it is possible to slaughter animals with minimal pain or fear… but if we don’t speak up whenever we learn about cruelty, then the weird, bizarre people who enjoy inflicting fear and cruelty will get away with it.

This either/or black/white way some of you try to argue is not valid. Yes, many of us eat meat. That does not ipso facto mean that all manner of cruelty “must” happen. Find a better argument.

Ye olde Canberran who think footy games are an out-dated concept (along with meat pies), who try and shove carrot sticks down our necks on the weekend. Through the week, they fit in their peg hole at the APS. What is it with the APS, parking machines, carrot sticks and fireworks?

Ummm … what?

Yes, I’m sure there’s no animal cruelty involved in sustaining the lifestyle of us civilised, non-flannie wearing Canberrans. I have it on good authority that the tender beef that goes into the delicious Brodburger was only taken after the animal died peacefully in its sleep, surrounded by loved ones. And the cream in this mornings latte was freely given by a cow that has never known a cattle prod or a had its tail twisted in a cattle crush.

I’m not defending cruelty inflicted for fun- but rodeos are supposed to showcase the skills of people who supply us with food, and if you don’t think that involves a lot of cruelty then you’re kidding yourself.

Our lifestyle comes at horrendous cost to animals (and the environment generally) and I don’t think we should be too smug about it.

Looks to me that the gal was pulled off her feet while lassoed. The pic was taken in an odd angle at the bad moment. Nothing to see hear good ‘ol folks.

Did you click on the link and look at the vid?

The throwing on the ground wasn’t that bad, it was the lasoo hand brake turn that nearly broke her neck that was the worst bit about the whole thing.

Nope. If the picture is supposed to reel me in, it did not.

Fat, useless, stupid rednecks.

I would just love to give that one bloke a dose of the cattle prod on his face for 30 minutes or so, and see if it riles him up good too.

Yeah, the poor old chickens get a raw deal thats for sure.

I have never been into Rodeos, I have been to them but have not been entirely comfortable with it.

Things have changed since I was little. I am from a Dairy farming family and I cannot remember the animals being treated that way. The worst I can remember is castrating the bulls and the rams (when we had sheep) without anesthetic.

Apart from that, the animals were all treated really well.

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.

EvanJames 5:12 pm 12 Mar 13

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.

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.

Amanda Hugankis 4:03 pm 12 Mar 13

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..
