Its steer wrestling they are talking about because of the death of a steer during the rodeo.

I will not voice my opinion because I will just get mad and start screaming and get kicked off of the forum.

I would imagine neither is very good or pleasant for the steer or calf, to say the least. I see the functionality IF your raising cattle but I don't think it needs to be done unnecessarily.

This doesnt bug the calf or steer, steers would Be meat if rodeoz werent useing then and they have top quality care. Calves are not harmed if done properly

Guess people just see things differently. Personally, I've never seen anything wrong with roping or wrestling.

You mean to tell me that stopping an animal at a dead run by rope around its neck isn't causing any pain to the animal?

Like this one right here...

On the subject of calf roping, I'm afraid to say that I saw a calf hurt. After it was roped and dropped in its tracks, it just lay there and you could see blood coming from its anus. Three or four cowboys picked it up and carried it out of arena. That was, and will be, the last time I watch calf roping.

With regard to steer wrestling, I'm sitting on the fence with that one. I think I would like to see steers that aren't so flimsy looking being used though.
