Yes theres no question the chuckwagon races should be banned. So should the horse pull. No event should continue when it is fully known an animal could die in it. The horse pulls are also SHEAR torture for horses.... I have seen one and some of the horses literally collapsed on their knees treying to do it..It is so cruel... makes me mad.

You do realise that chucks and rodeo's are part of a cowboys way of life. These people do this for a living and that is how they pay their bills. They have a lot of money invested in their teams of horses. For many this is all they know and has supported their families for generations. Many horses die daily collapsing from just being ridden in a normal way. I say if you don't like it don't support it or watch it but don't be telling other people what they can or cannot do. I don't like many things in life but instead of bitching about it i just don't go to the places i don't agree with. It's that easy. It would be a different story if these animals were being treated badly or beaten. Spend your time and energy on young children being abused or the elderly people being abused. Leave hard working people alone.

You do realize that people are becoming aware of the animal cruelty involved in these despicable events. I don't care how many generations it has been going on all ANIMAL CRUELTY needs to stop. Also, you do not tell me or anyone what to focus our attention on. MOST Animal rights activists are helping animals AND humans. We will try to help anyone who s being exploited, abused, or treated cruelly in any way whether they are human or non human. These despicable events need to be banned forever and I for one will do all I can to see it happen.

"People are becoming aware of the animal cruelty involved in these events"?? Maybe you should do some checking and just see how closely these animals are watched by many animal rights activists. You need to learn to know before you spew things you have no idea about. Nobody is harming these animals. Try finding out the "REAL" facts before you spew off and then maybe i won't have to tell you anything. Sorry but you don't have a clue what you are talking about as far as the animals at the Calgary Stampede go. Your post proves that. Fact finding is a wonderful thing! Try it! You might learn something.

I totally agree with you as far as animal cruelty goes. But you are posting stuff that you really have no idea about

What part of "I woke up a long time ago and that's why I speak out against ALL animal cruelty" do you not understand? I have done my research and continue to research and keep track of what is going on...and you? Do you just sit on your rear criticizing people who actually are doing something about it?

But when you woke up, LUMPY, you walked into a wall and suffered frontal lobe damage. Now you talk gibberish and eat through a straw.

Really? Then explain to everyone why you gleefully support, condone and deliberately cause countless animals to suffer and die just to end up on your plate? You sit there and scream 'hypocrite' to so many people it's time you take a good look in a mirror. You also need to seek psychiatric help for your disturbing obsession. Quit criticizing everyone else for doing what YOU do. You literally pay for animals to suffer and die violent deaths so you are no better than the people who pay for rodeos, circuses, dog fights, greyhound racing....etc. you have no grounds to judge others when you are deliberately causing animals to be tortured, abused, confined, de beaked, mutilated, and brutally murdered and you are PAYING for the animal abuse. You need a reality check and some good psychiatric help.

LOL, HAC you ARE a hypocrite. you moan and yap about other people causing animal suffering and death yet you do so yourself. millions of animals suffer and die for you to eat your vegan diet.

eating meat is natural and animal products remain the best source of nutrients the human body needs. killing animals for food is NOT ABUSE. rodeos, circuses, dog fights ect.... is.

now, quite obsessing over me and go eat some grass, bi*ch.

WRONG as always, you mentally disturbed no life troll . Not only am I NOT a hypocrite, but I call you out for your blatant hypocrisy. You sit on your flabby corpse laden rear bitching and moaning about people and YOU are literally paying for animals to be forced into miserable short lives and unconscionably cruel deaths just for your effing ignorant selfish appetite. Killing animals when there are SEVERAL non animal HEALTHY alternatives IS cruel and it is WRONG. You are too dam' stupid and too concerned about defending your sick lust for eating corpses and pus laden secretions that you refuse to see what a despicable HYPOCRITE you are. You are mentally deranged and the fact that you spend so much time trolling the ANIMAL RIGHTS forums when YOU are paying for animals to be abused, tortured, mutilated and murdered, makes you an even bigger hypocrite than the sorry slob trolls who infest these threads with their ignorance. You need serious psychiatric help, you disgusting POS. you are so dam obsessed with me that I have no doubt you think of me from the time you crawl out of your roach infested bed till you crawl back into it. You do nothing but post about me and even your asinine moniker has my former moniker in it because you are so disturbingly OBSESSED with me! Hilarious how you continue to make an ass of yourself. Run along and decorate!

ta-ta psycho!

flabby? so im flabby because i eat meat? that must mean you're anorexic because you're vegan.

HAC, you are a hypocrite and everyone knows it. you moan and yap about other peoples diets causing animal suffering and deaths yet yours does too. like i have said before, there is no bloodless diet. you're an animal killer, that is just a fact you will just have to accept.

its funny how you say im obsessed with you yet you respond to my every post, even the ones not about you. you're an obsessive little freak and an attention whore. you have no social life so you come on here daily in search off arguments and you insult everyone in sight. you're a nasty little cretin and its a real shame your mother didnt have an abortion.

enjoy your next rant, you deranged POS, and dont forget to decorate this post. we all know how you love the judge it icons ;)

You need serious psychiatric help IMMEDIATELY. No sane person obsesses like you do. No sane person spends an entire day TROLLING a forum that pertains to issues they know NOTHING about. You PAY to have animals suffer and die and that is a FACT. You are mentally disturbed and even show signs of multiple personality disorder. GET HELP, you disgusting freak and quit wasting space bitching, whining and having hissy fits over things and people you Leary know NOTHING about. You are sick and you need help. No doubt you will regurgitate some more and waste more space because your entire pointless 'life' is spent hovering and waiting for me to post. Don't forget to decorate, you pathetic psycho. You fool NO ONE and I know more about you than you will ever know.'this true!! ;)
