Do you feel rodeo's are cruel to the animals? Please give your opinions and explain why. Do you attend rodeo's and would you consider going to one?

yes I think they are very cruel, it is ok for the people concerned as they know what they are doing but the animals do not know what is happening, and the fear they have within themselves at being teased and taunted strapped up in areas to make them angry...I don't think animals are here for our pleasure they have feelings and they have a will to live and they feel fear you can see it in their eyes, no i would never go to one...

I agree with you. I wonder why the animal cruelty organizations havent tried to stop it.? It seems very barbaric. If they stop dog fighting and other forms of cruelty, then wouldnt this also be just as bad? I also wonder why they have never outlawed bull fighting as well?
