1. Contact the corporations that give money to the CFD Rodeo. Without corporate welfare the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo would end tomorrow. This cruel spectacle cannot exist without corporate handouts. It is vitally important that you contact the companies listed below and let them know what you think of their sponsorship of animal cruelty.
2. Support SHARK with a donation. It is expensive to transport the SHARK team and to live on the road for the weeks needed to document this event. A large investment in equipment and its maintenance is also required to bring all this evidence to you and the world. Be assured we operate as economically as possible, but we do need your help.
3. You can keep the spotlight on the cruel realities of this rodeo by contacting the local papers. There is very strong pressure from the Rodeo Mafia on both of these papers, but the local media needs to know that the public wants compassion more than cruelty. Ask that the newspapers print both sides of the story and that they report on rodeo injuries as well as doing their typical fluff rodeo promotion stories. Urge them to print editorials to demand that the PRCA be held accountable for the actions, or inaction, of their people and the treatment of the animals they use specifically the continued cruelty of the Wild Horse race, Calk jerk-downs, and the cruel and deadly Steer Busting events.
