Kick Super 8 Hotels Out of Rodeo Cruelty

The Super 8 hotel chain has announced that they are sponsoring both the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and the Women's Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA), so they have doubled down on their sponsorship of animal cruelty.

The PRCA is the front group that desperately tries to mask the brutal nature of rodeos. Thanks to SHARK's numerous videos from PRCA sponsored rodeos, the public knows the truth: rodeos are violent, ugly and completely dishonorable. We haven't hidden our videos - in fact any PR firm looking to sponsor an event would at least do a Google search before they sign the contract. So we can safely assume Super 8 knew exactly what it was doing when it entered into this bloody agreement with the PRCA.

 

"The Super 8 hotel brand has a great history of supporting the passions and interests of our guests, which is why I couldn't be more excited to launch these newest sponsorships," said John Valletta, president of Super 8

There are lots of good, positive things to be passionate about, but beating young calves into the dirty ground should not be one of them.
