The Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo (CFD) is known as one of the most cruel and brutal rodeos in all of America. SHARK has documented the two-weeks of violence and death that is part and parcel of this brutal rodeo in 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
SHARK has gone to CFD to bear witness and document as the rodeo maims and kills animals in a cruel and very predictable manner. Every year, animals will die over the two-week rodeo for 'entertainment.' We know it, the sponsors know it, and CFD knows it. Animals are literally dying at the hands of cowardly rodeo thugs to help greedy corporations sell more sugar water and to entertain drunk and/or dumb-witted fans.
Over the years SHARK has forced a number of changes in the rodeo, such as the banning of electrical prods in the chutes and the education of potential artistic performers. However, many inhumane practices still take place - cruel and deadly calf jerk-downs, the Wild Horse Race which is as cruel as it is stupid. And of course the most brutal event in all of rodeo is a big part of the Cheyenne rodeo - Single Steer Roping, known to rodeo people more accurately as Steer Busting.
Blood covering the inside of a bucking chute gate tells the real story
behind the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo.
SHARK has documented countless animal injuries and death, all while the rodeo, the local media, the PRCA, and the sponsors wrap themselves in God and country while they then turn around and beat the living hell out animals and claim to be humane and responsible humans and corporations.
All of the graphic images shown on this site were documented by SHARK investigators at the Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) Rodeo. The pictures and videotape tell the truth of the rodeo as many animals are injured, abused, and even killed.
