Boardwalk Rodeo organizers say their October event in Atlantic City will not include the use of hand-held electric prods to spur reluctant horses out of their chutes during the show.

The Illinois-based Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, or SHARK, alleges a horse died during a show at Cowtown Rodeo in Pilesgrove Township, Salem County, on Saturday about 30 seconds after being zapped with such a device.

Asked if a prod was used on the horse - 9-year-old Duke - Cowtown Rodeo owner Grant Harris said, "No." Using prods on horses such as Duke, which are trained to buck, "makes no sense," he said.
