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

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.
