Is that what you were asking?
Nope, I was saying that mayb e he did recieve care and it was either edited out of the video to help the message or that it happened later on. Not saying it couldnt have been handled better but still, it is propaganda after all.

A lot of what I see in this video is unnecessary harm, plain and simple. I don't care where it occurred, it isn't acceptable. The text, however, diminishes the video's seriousness as it is overdramatic. It would be a shame to see this occurrence dismissed because the text was supposed to be emotionally provocative.

The guy was an idiot for running the calf into the fence but that isn't what hurt the calf. What hurt the calf was an accident of the sort that would be hard to duplicate if you tried. The leg was in the right spot when the rope came tight and it broke. It was an accident for which the roper probably felt pretty bad about and had to pay for. I have watched alot of reined cowhorse competitions and once in a great while they will have a cow that gets really wound up and jumps at the fence and breaks it's neck. If the contestant that is working the cow ran it into the fence they are held responsible for the animal and have to pay for it if the person did nothing wrong then the association pays for it but there is financial incentive for everyone to handle the cattle in the most humane way possible not to mention the fact that nobody wants to see an animal die unnecessarily.

Call me cold but I could not stop laughing at the obvious .... stupidity.... of the big captions put across the screen.

If there is sound I missed that part since I am at work and did not want to turn the speakers up.

The calf running into the fence at the end did not look intentional to me. Calf could have easily turned at the end, the horse was not blocking its way. And then the line about nearly trampling it to death. Geez, can you make a simple turn of events sound anymore inflammatory if you wanted to? Oh wait, logic was not the goal, getting people up in arms was.

And it sure looked to me like the guy was trying to loosen the rope from around the calf. If they are going to point a finger it has to be at the horse who was doing its job of tightening the rope.

I don't watch any vidieo made by those people. It's ridiculous. I don't see the leg as broken, MAYBE a dislocated joint, but if it was broken the calf would not have put ANY weight on it. The people who make these vidieos are idiots. They know nothing about the actual events they are filming. Just go watch a few more and you can tell. They find every accident and make it look intentional. i have been to our county rodeo (3 night event plus ropings and sortings all day for the week) and countless ropings and have NEVER seen an animal that was hurt not get tended to. They allways let the animal go back into the pens before they treat it if it can get there. Have you tried chasing hurt calf all over the arena trying to doctor it? Not good for the calf. Let it go back to the pen where it can calm down and be handled with alot more ease and alot less stress. They generalize the one accident and edit it to make it seem like all rodeos are bad. They're idiots.

PETA propaganda. heck, working at a vet, during vaccination, branding, etc I have seen calves hurt a leg, but will still run your butt over to get away... In all the real rodeos that I have seen in my many years, I can count on the number of fingers the animals that have gotten hurt..
I see worst treatment of horses in the "background" of a local horse show and county fair, spurring, hitting, ripping on mouths etc. then you see at rodeos.
Rodeo animals and rodeo contestant animals are the things that make the money and you can bet they are treated well.

Like I said before" PETA" pure and simple

I'd say about 99% of the time... the humans get hurt during rodeos... not the animals... and even when the animals get hurt it hardly isn't anything to freak out about.

So you are saying this misguided video of a pure and simple accident worked on you exactly like it was supposed to eh? Some people tend to forget how hardy cows(yes, even babies) really are and let their bleeding heart muddle their logical vision...

i see no utter point in this sport,
The point, is that out on the range, it is essential to rope calves to doctor them, and if you didn't they would die.

Seems like a pretty good point to me :]
