Barnyard Scramble Supporters Speak Out
When SHARK exposed the hideous animal cruelty committed at a "barnyard scramble" in Martinsville, Illinois, local residents, who saw our coverage on two televised newscasts, became so incensed that their private abuse was now very public that they left a stream of angry calls on our voicemail.
Here's a little of what they said:
It's a rare occasion that someone takes pride in their inter-family breeding, but when you are throwing baby animals around like toys, I guess it just doesn't make sense to hide it.

Horses Shocked, Abused at Colorado Rodeo
Another rodeo, another story of animal abuse. The Estes Park Rooftop Rodeo shocks horses, while the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), the sanctioning body, says nothing.
"Born to buck" is BS, as was shown when this horse didn't want to leave the chute. Even though he was being hit in the face by a rodeo thug, the horse remained calm and peaceful -- until he was hit with 5,000 volts from an electric shock device. That the rodeo industry inflicts pain to horses to force them to perform says everything about this corrupt "entertainment."
