We need your help to expose the truth about cruelty in rodeos ...

Rodeos are an American creation that have made their way to Australia. Some people try to justify rodeos as being an occasion for bush-dwellers to show off their skills. The truth though is that rodeos involve unnecessary cruelty to animals. It is for this reason that they are banned in the UK, several countries in Europe and even in the Australian Capital Territory.

Despite the ACT's compassionate lead, rodeos still take place in all other Australian states and territories. At these events calves can be dragged by a rope around their necks, and stressed horses and bulls may slam into fences and gates. Broken bones and the deliberate provocation of animals add to the misery endured by animals at these events.

The tide has turned though against rodeos. Community pressure has already prompted major businesses like Kmart and Telstra to drop their support for rodeos, and thousands of Aussies have also pledged to never support these events.

The footage here is recent and it is all Australian. Despite claims by organisers that rodeos do not involve the suffering of animals - the reality couldn't be more different. Watch the clip and make your own mind up.

Help support the campaign to ban rodeos in Australia by sharing the video. The more people who know the truth about animal suffering at rodeos, the more will be behind the push to get rid of them entirely.
