Just recently I was channel surfing on the boob tube and a program caught my eye.
The program was some kind of rodeo.
Two things caught my eye.
First, I was impressed with how fast this cowboy-type guy lassoed and tied a hog. (He did it in about 7 seconds.)
But on the flip side…………….
Second, I was a little disgusted when I saw the hog’s neck jerk violently back when it was being lassoed by this cowboy-type guy. (I felt so sorry for the poor little thing because having it’s neck violently jerked back like that must of hurt like hell! I’m so glad it’s little neck wasn’t broken! Not to mention, I know the poor little thing must not of been too thrilled to be flipped on it’s back and having it’s hooves tied together. I’m sure that must have been fun to the cowboy-types but not to the animals.)
In my opinion, animals are smarter and more aware than you think!
After watching the rodeo, a few questions came to mind which is why I am writing this article.
“What does PETA think of rodeos? Do they think that lassoing and tying animals together for sport is animal cruelty? Do average joes find this sport offensive to animals? Does PETA even consider riding a horse in order to lasso animals in a rodeo, animal cruelty?
“Please let me know your opinion, PETA members and average joes.
P.S. Part of me feels like a hypocrite for thinking that this sport is kinda’ cruel to animals when one of my favorite things to eat is bacon.
