Horse Brutally Injured, Potentially Killed at Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo

July 24, 2013 

View the video here:


On Tuesday, July 23, 2013 during the Steer Wrestling event at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo (CFD) a horse suffered a brutal and devastating injury. Investigators from SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK), who have been monitoring animal abuse at the rodeo, captured most of the horrific event on video.  

The video shows that, as the rider chased the steer, he aimed the horse at an angle that was dangerously close to the fence and large platform. In these following screen shots from the video, you can see how the horse was literally shot toward the fence and platform at high speed, with no chance of turning or avoiding the structure. In the last image, the horse is just inches away from the fence and structure.

SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) is continuing to film animal abuse and cruelty at the California Rodeo Salinas. Yesterday, July 20, 2013, we filmed a young calf being injured, then ignored while he suffered in what appeared to be a repeat of 2012 when a bucking horse with a  broken leg was left to suffer for over 45 minutes before being killed.

Animal Injuries Continue to Pile Up at Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo

A steer breaks its leg and two horses fall head first over a fence, watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=We6ONpWPoTI

SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness continues its vigilance at Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo monitoring the animal injuries and deaths. On Saturday, July 20th, a steer broke his leg in the roping event, and was dragged around the arena with his leg dangling behind it. The injury proved deadly for the young animal and he had to be euthanized. 

In another event, two horses and riders fell head first over a fence in dangerous accidents. These are no “freak” accidents, as the rodeos like to try to cover up the abuse but daily occurrences of animals suffering terribly for entertainment. It is unknown what the fate of the two horses was.

On July 19, 2013 a young steer was killed at California Rodeo Salinas during a roping event. The steer was trampled by a horse and sustained fatal injuries. Animal protection group, SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) was filming at the event documenting animal abuse. The group has previously condemned the rodeo for it’s treatment of animals specifically for employing stock contractor, Cotton Rosser and the Flying U Rodeo who are notorious for using electro-prods to provoke animals to buck out of the chute.

Second Animal Dies With Horrific Injuries at Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo

July 20, 2013

Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLF5XFBIPFU

A young steer was killed today at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. The second animal to have his neck snapped in two days. The traumatic video shows the horrible injuries sustained by the steer as it was roped and then dragged through the mud with an obvious broken neck. 

On the second day of the rodeo, a young calf’s neck was also broken during a calf-roping event. Investigators from SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness have been present at the rodeo documenting the animal abuse. Although veterinarians are apparently on rodeo staff they appear to do nothing to curtail endangering animals but are merely on hand to euthanize.
