Rodeos are based on cruelty to animals

July 31, 2013

I saw the fine cowboys pictured praying before the rodeo in Carroll County ("In it for the bucks," July 27).

Well, many of us are praying for the day when rodeos are recognized for what they are: the humiliation, terrorizing, hurting and killing of peaceful non-volunteer animals in the name of "entertainment" — all for the audience's viewing pleasure.

That is sick. There are plenty of ways to have fun in life without exploiting animals. Please do not support rodeos or elect politicians who choose to ignore animal cruelty.
