Stuff like this rarely happens from what i've seen. I've worked at rodeos over two summers and if any men (or women) run a cow into the fence, or 'keep going' when the steer is hurt they either get disqualified and/or get a hard time about it. I've even seen some cowboys give each other the cold shoulder if they are roping or riding showing off what they can do. Over spuring or tugging on their horses are uncalled for.

That actually brought tears to my eyes. Call me a sook I don't really care, that was a baby calf for goodness sake, can you imagine the pain it was in running off with a broken leg? They should have shot it when it was still tied up on the ground, straight away.

I don't care if it only happens rarely, once is enough. Truly sickening. Too bad you aren't allowed to use profanities on this website as there are a few choice terms that spring to mind which would perfectly describe people like that calf roper.

Accident propagandized to make people look like monsters. And the saddest thing is it works and people feed into it and vilify rodeos and the competitors....

I saw someone at a jumper show and she was hauling on her horses mouth with a vicious gag bit, and whipping him and spurring him when he wouldn't go over a jump.

Oh, I guess I missed the part where the vet came running over to put the calf to put it out of its misery. Or maybe the fence really wasn't that hard after all, perhaps someone should have told the calf to suck it up and stop being so soft. I mean really, he chose to run that direction didn't he?

You know, I don't really have a problem with rodeos, they are exciting to watch the rider/horse combinations are amazing. I do believe that given the nature of competitions like this one there should be a vet on standby to deal with any animal that needs to be attended to or put down. Immediately. The fact that this calf got up and ran across the arena dragging its back leg is a disgrace.

Now if you will excuse me I am off to hug a tree with all the other animal loving hippies.

I agree that perhaps this situation was handled wrongly, and that the calf needed to receive immediate medical attention. However, I also agree that this was probably an accident. Perhaps not the running into the fence bit. The rider surely has eyes. That looked a little intentional.

MacabreMikolaj, not all jumpers are abusive. I myself am a jumper, but I don't use spurs or whips or gags. Please don't generalize. Not all jumpers are abusive, just like not all rodeo riders are as careless as these obviously were

I can't watch the video at work, but was it apparent that the calf had broken it's leg before they untied it?
    05-05-2010, 10:52 PM
Yeah it was. The calf was injured after it got up but not before. Sometime when it was tied

I sincerely believe that MacabreMikolaj meant that as sacrasm and/or irony.
