Yes, it is cruelty. And you would never see it happened at an actual SANCTIONED rodeo. I was at a rodeo two years ago and a bronc mare broke her leg - and the entire event came to a COMPLETE halt as every single person on hand rushed into the arena to help her. Where are the videos about that I wonder? I have a photos, maybe I should make one!

Oh- these shark people drive me NUTS!!!!!!...look up one of their videos....horse being gored to death.... or something like that.........THE HORSE IS NOT GORED TO DEATH!!!! there is hardly any blood. And they try to pass of the act of a rodeo worker thorwing their hat at the bull as a cruel act because the hat spooked the already scared horse and hit it in the face......I tried to email them about that part of the video.....and I never got any response from them. I do believe their hearts are in the right place...and I was horrified for the horse in the clip........................but think about how many hours of rodeos they had to sit through to get that 45 second clip
And the other thing they do in this video is say the horse was put down from its injuries......and they give no viable proof that the horse was put down..and being put down is different than dying...oh they make me mad!!!

Agreed. Being put down is the humane thing to do, compared to "trying to fix it" and letting it suffer.

Agreed. After I clicked the link I saw a comment someone had made about how the Calgary Stampede is carefully watched by animal rights activists and how no one dares to abuse their animals. To which SHARK replied:
"So how come at least three chuckwagon horses died up there last year?"

Well...two had heart attacks (completely unavoidable and freak), and one had to be euthanized from a broken leg resulting from the crash.
And then I tried to comment. But of course the farthat only allows "approved comments".

I agree that some places there are horrible things happening to animals, but I don't think SHARK should be targeting events/organizations that are doing what they can to improve safety.

I don't like shark or any of those crazy orginizations. I would show them abuse if I ever got hold of some of their scrawny necks. I hate VERY few things, people or orginizations, but they are one of the few I truly hate. I didn't watch the whole video, but I only went to where the wild horse dragged that guys butt across the arena... And I laughed. Ya the horse was scared andeverything, but who do you think came out more busted up? The horse or person xD

YES some abuse does go on, but in almost all cases there is no abuse. At the Calgary stampede I have seen the way they treat those animals... The halters for the broncs are sheepskin underneath, and so are the bucking straps. A calf broke his poor neck last year... And guess what? Before I blinked there were at least six or more vets and everyone out there by it's side. They had to put it down sadly, but they did it in front of the crowd and did it humanely, and the next day it was on the front page of the herald.

I really would like to know how much footage they actually screen to get these once in a blue moon accidents. And how much they cut out of these accidents

We are at a rodeo a couple years ago, and I guess one of the young son's was being allowed to help out by sorting the calves and sending the next one out for roping. He was probably only about 10 but got it in his head that "macho cowboys" hit calves with sticks for no reason - we were laughing our HEADS off when his (dad?) came up behind him and CUFFED him across the back of the head.

Rodeo is no different then any sport involving animals - there will ALWAYS be cruelty and abuse, but there are just as many people doing their best to stop it and put up a good example.

Here is what WE caught on footage at the same rodeo - and it was the ONLY accident (even minor) of the entire day we were there:













The entire rodeo came to a halt as they RACED into the ring hellbent for leather to subdue her. They got her hog tied so she couldn't hurt herself, rolled onto this tarp you see, and then a dozen guys walked bent over, holding her, the entire way out. The announcer also stated about an hour later (of his own accord), that she'd injured a leg and was being treated by a vet and should be ok.

haha macrabre, the cowboy in the first picture is just hoing to god that horse doesnt hit him, I love his face, haha.

Glad to hear that horse was being treated, but that's exactly what it was, and accident, It drives me up the walls when people see an accident and freak out calling it abuse, accidents happen, and will always happen, the horse was fixed, and its all better now. Organizations like SHARK always seem to 'accidently' leave out peoples attempts at trying to help/save the animal in an accident... hmmmmm, wonder why.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Im not saying by no means that we shouldn't have rodeos, well were I live we don't have anything like calf roping, bucking broncs, we only have barrel racing, down and back, the pick up, pole bending, and like showmanship along with amature walk and trot. But I still don't like calf roping, broncs or anything like that... I don't mind it if done properly. And I agree that accidents, unfortunatly do happen, what that video showed was horrible cruelty.
