i think everybody needs to go learn about rodeo. i do ride bulls and we used to own bulls, i am always around rodeo and bull riding and there is nothing cruel about it! the flank is NOT tied around there balls and that is the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard. and a "pocket rocket" is an electric prod and it is used to move them through the alleys. it does not hurt the bulls because there skin is 8 times thicker than us humans. if u want to read about the bull welfare. search around pbrnow.com and they have an animal welfare section just to explain. seriously why wuld somebody spend anywhere from 5,000-200,000 on a bull and then treat it bad? can anybody answer me that? rodeo is part of life and sometimes animals just get hurt, it is there time to go, things can happen on the farm just as much as at a rodeo. just like us people anything can happen to us at anytime. these animals are well fed all the time and always taken care of. if a contractor sees a bull acting differently he will call a vet right away to find out wat the problem is. there are still some **** who treat them like **** and they should not own them but the PBR(professional bull riders) are the greatest athletes in the world(the bulls that is) and are treated with the best care in the world.
