The 2011 CFD rodeo stood out in several ways. Firstly, the rodeo killed an unprecedented number of horses, calfs and steers. The amount of injuries and death that companies like Bank of the West, Sierra Trading, and Coca-Cola sponsored, was truly astounding.
There was so much death that CFD management took to coming into the grandstands and trying to block SHARK's cameras. Instead of doing something to stop the cruelty, they simply try and stop the world from seeing it. Typical rodeo tactic. Watch the videotape of CFD Tickets Chairman Jim Gorman directing thugs to physically block SHARK president Steve Hindi from filming here.
And sadly, Sheryl Crow performed at CFD, despite being an alleged horse lover. Read about that story here.
Below are just some of the abuses that SHARK's cameras documented:
