Tell Bull Riding Sponsors: Don’t Support Animal Cruelty!

This alert is no longer active, but here for reference. Animals still need your help.

Help us stop the Professional Bull Rider's Iron Cowboy bull riding competition on February 8 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Please join us and fellow activist efforts to cancel this violent, dangerous, and deadly competition before anyone else gets hurt!

To exhibit the desired frantic behaviors of the bulls in bull riding contests, bulls are provoked and routinely fitted with tight, painful flank straps, kicked with spurs, and shocked with 5,000-volt electric prods.

As bulls—who are generally docile animals—buck wildly to rid themselves of these tools of torment, they often suffer broken limbs, cardiac arrest, punctured lungs, torn ligaments, ruptured organs, broken necks, crushed tracheas, and severe emotional trauma.

Because of an unwillingness by competition organizers to spend money, injured bulls are often killed rather than provided with desperately needed veterinary care. Bull riders can also suffer serious injuries and death. A University of Calgary study found rodeo contestants are 20 times more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries than football players.
