To me that is abuse. Anyone want to differ??
This really bothers me, this is outright abuse. YouTube - Rodeo Thugs Abuse & Injure Calf in Garden City, Kansas
I seriously doubt he really tried to run the calf into the fence. As anyone knows, a 1200 lb horse cannot stop on a dime. The horse was doing its best not to step on the calf. Obviously, ropers are not perfect all the time and you cannot expect anyon in their intire career, not to foul rope a calf. SHARK also believes that riding horses is wrong. I've seen these people at more than 1 rodeo and they tried to accuse me of abusing my horse for when she tried to bite my friend, I smacked her neck with my bare hand. Seriously now?!?!? Like Kevin said, this probably isn't a PRCA event. SHARK will do everything and anything, even lie, to make people feel sorry for them. And I also doubt this calf didn't receive any medical care. If you grew up around rodeos, everyone cares about the animals. I've seen cowboys make friends with the bulls they ride or the bucking horses they ride. If this woulda happened around here, you could bet that the whole crowd would be very vocal that that calf needs care, which it probably did recieve.
