Has Forsyth County not yet joined the rest of civilized society?

Why is this county still sponsoring rodeos where animals are tortured for the almighty dollar?

Bet the guys from the rodeo have tiny electric prods they use to shock those animals into "performing", too.

Forcing innocent animals to "perform" so yall can feel all manly. How pathetic.

My family just went to their first rodeo. It was great. I never saw any form of torture or hurting of the animals. I found this when trying to find another rodeo to go to. I really don't think it's what you think it is.

Anyone who attends rodeos SHOULD be aware of what they do to those animals -

You think they come out bucking for their health?

Research, folks, research - it is NOT "good clean fun" - least not for the those animals.

Sorry, my friend - but rather it is "you" that has no clue as to what "it really is".

R-e-s-e-a-r-c-h

Of course they are going to keep things hidden from view the best they can - they know it's illegal.

And they know that animal advocates are watching alot more closely.

Bottom line is - IF you respect animals at ALL, you would not attend these types of events.

I bet you're a democrat.

Here's a direct link to a bunch of videos - again, if you choose not to believe your own eyes, you get tossed into the 'hopeless' pile.

Rodeos are for the "grown"(?) men that want to play "cowboy and indian". It makes 'em feel "manly" to use live animals cruelly and bully them.

Ya think the animals enjoy broken necks, legs, bruises and death?

Good grief - the nwo is gonna love you guys.

Come speak up for the animals !

Say NO to licensing these events.

The City of Cumming should get with
the rest of civilized society.

Rodeos are NOT family fun - they only
help to make kids, and "adults", believe
that it's okay to abuse live animals for entertainment - and money.

And you guys wonder why there's so much
violence in our society today - buy that
rodeo ticket and you are only contributing to this.

"Do I think it hurts the calf? Sure I do. I'm not stupid."
~Keith Martin, Chairman of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), in an
interview about the abusive calf roping event
==========
"I do not torture animals, and I do not support
the torture of animals, such as that which goes
on at rodeos: cowardly men in big hats abusing
simple beasts in a fruitless search for manhood."
~George Carlin
==========
"Without torture, there can be no rodeos. In my
opinion, and based on my extensive training
and experience, it is impossible to create a humane
rodeo."
~Peggy W. Larson, DVM, large animal veterinarian
and former bronc rider
==========
“In addition to mistreatment and neglect,
animals are often injured during rodeo
competition.”
~Kerry Levin, DVM, former barrel racer
and rodeo vet
==========
"You don't have to be an animal rights activist to see
how these rodeos hurt the animals. It isn't a matter
of perspective or opinion – animal suffering, injuries
and death are all part of rodeos."

I stated ridig bulls when I was little and been doing it for years. If you think a 2 thousand lbs animal is getting hurt from a rope then you are an idiot.

I ride barrels and attended my first rodeo back a year or so ago because some of the girls in my equestrain club were riding in it.

This is still the South. People still love rodeos. No, this doesn't mean it's right, but people will go anywhere the money is... and it's in Forsyth!

And here it is Sept 1, 2013 - and the Cumming Rodeo is in town as I type!
.
I pray for the innocent animals being used there.
Our society is just as it was back in the Roman days - filling up arenas, serving drinks and guffawing at the animal "entertainment". It was a sick society then - and it's a sick society now.

You are making a ignorant statement because yes there are some rodeo contractors that have tortured animals for sport but not all of em are that way. U should learn more about something before you run your mouth and sound stupid. Horses now days are bred to be performing bucking horses and bulls too! It is a very good family fun sport and u have just heard or seen some form of cruelty somewhere but u have not seen behind the scene truth. So shut the f??? Up and try to learn instead of point fingers, I'm sure u ate a hamburger this week and if a bull didn't buck he may be what u ate too, FYI. This provides second chance for dangerous horses and bulls dumbass!!!
