Well Just about how many animals die at rodeo's a year? If its an outstanding number which I would think so. People need to do something about it. We are KILLING for sport. Its sick!

Its just like that one book, about this guy who owned an island and he hunted all the game in the world then he got tired of killing animals. So who ever came onto his island he would welcome them with open arms treat them to a feast, room and board. Then set them loose with a small hunting knife and hunt the people with his dogs.... Are we next? Or are we not going to get sick with killing our animals for fun? Whats the big deal we can just breed more, right?

Even though at rodeos the animals die by accident its still the same thing we put them in danger, for what? Fun?

Well, not all rodeos are horrible. If they go too far, like the one in the video, they are. I know I am kind of contradicting myself by putting the video up and now saying rodeos aren't all bad, but they aren't. Even riding a horse puts it in danger. Jumping, racing, and even just galloping across a pasture is putting the horse in danger. But you do it because you love it. The horse does too.

Gypsy I ride in rodeos and I get to spend time on the chutes whenever I can because I no some guys back there and I watch them so close. No body has ever hit, smack, slapped, spooked or yelled at the horses. One of them stands there in the chute with the horse to calm it down, they own all the horses brought to that rodeo, and then they have like three people with the horse to keep them calm. And you no how people say the horses get beat out in the back areas well that aint true they have had little little kids out there petting them and grooming them. And I have never been at a rodeo that had more then 1 horse, calf or bull die so I don't know were you go to rodeos but here in Wyoming and montana and all the way up to wisconsin I have never seen more then 1 animal die. So start looking up your facts before you start hating somthing that every true cowboy and cowgirl loves to watch and compete in. I aint lying im only 13 so I don't think I would be lying bout something on this topic and I get to see more of the rodoe experions then most of them cowboys that ride the bulls do. 1 more thing the horses that are bucking in the rodeos are all well cared for animals that just can't be broke out

It was an accident. It was only 25 seconds until the guy was back with the horse. The clown was out there to protect the horse and rider because that is his job. The cowboys job is to get to safety so the clown has less to worry about. Yes, the horse dies, but it was an accident. They were trying to throw that hat at the bull to pull it's atention to them and off the horse. They missed, but they were trying to get the bull away from the horse the whole time.

Its really bad I know but I laughed at that video. Its hilarious that the man talking said he abandoned his horse and that the Clown threw his hat at the horse. If anyone believes that...
All I saw was an accident. Just like Smoothtrails said. The cowboy has to get out of the way so the Clowns can do their job. Why in the world would that horse have a bunch of cowboys there at the end if they were not concerned with the horses welfare?

I'm sorry but this is a HUGE generalization; the same thing could be said about ANY activity involving animals...

And as far as the human aspect...yes, there are crazed people out there, but THAT guy was a cold blooded killer, which is not the norm of the human population. I'm not going to walk around thinking that every person I meet is a potential serial killer, because I'd never experience anything in life that way.

Wow. That video is ridiculous!!!! What was the cowboy supposed to do, attack the bull with his bare hands while the horses hooves are thrashing about near him?! He comes right back to the horse once the bull is detained and obviously is really upset that it happened.
I love my horse as much as any human in my life, and I wouldn't stay right there if he got gored... risk my life AND his by making the bull run at me.
The clown didn't mean to hit the horse, lol...

It's a sad video but it's clearly and accident. The guy was a stupid young guy that wanted to rope the bull and look like a hot shot for some girl in the crowd probably... he wasn't thinking and it turned out to be a sad ending. It happens. Rodeos aren't bad because accidents happen in them... just like jumping isn't bad because accidents frequently happen.

The bull was already looking for trouble...he was just a rank one, and there's no way that the man could get his horse turned away from him in time. For him to have stood over his horse while the bull gored at him would not have accomplished anything, except to add another target for the bull. As soon as the horse was up, and bull contained, that horse had everyone in the arena surrounding him; he likely had better care than alot of us could afford before they euthanized him.
