Rodeo 101
posted on November 22, 2007

Rodeo 101Lifeforce reveals the hidden cruelty of the Rodeo industry.

The public is unaware of the behind the scenes abuses. The bucking straps are cinched tight to make the animals buck (they stop bucking when the straps are released), they are shocked with electric prods, their hair is twisted and sometimes pulled out, they are jabbed with spurs and more. Numerous animals have died from these rodeo practices.

In addition to the adult games Lifeforce was saddened to see how the very young kids were treated in Little Britches Rodeos. Some were crying and some were injured. They were not having fun. Parents have to sign a waiver for "injury or death".
