Baseball Team Must Cancel Cruel Monkey Rodeo

Monkey Rodeo Kelly

Target: Brian Colopy, President of Kalamazoo Growlers

Goal: Cancel cruel “Cowboy Monkey Rodeo Night,” where monkeys are strapped to dogs while they sprint around a track.

A baseball team in Michigan, the Kalamazoo Growlers, is planning on hosting a “Cowboy Monkey Rodeo Night” at its stadium. The event is exactly how it sounds and it is a terrifying ordeal for the animals involved.

At “monkey rodeos,” capuchin monkeys are strapped to dogs while the dogs sprint around a track. The dogs are also trained to make sudden stops which painfully jolts the monkeys in all different directions. Injury is very common during this event. In addition, this is all done while a crowd chants and screams. The chaos is extremely scary for the monkeys.

When the monkeys are not participating in the rodeo, they are held in cages and denied everything natural to them. It is a sad life and it is all for unnecessary “entertainment.” Sign this petition and demand the Growlers cancel the “Cowboy Monkey Rodeo Night.”

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Colopy,

Your team is planning a “Cowboy Monkey Rodeo Night.” The event is terrifying and painful for the monkeys.

The sudden stops and starts painfully jolt the monkeys in all possible directions. While the monkey is dealing with the stress of being strapped to an unpredictable dog, the crowd screams and chants which only makes the situation even scarier.

The event is completely unnecessary and by canceling it, these monkeys would be spared from terrible mental and possibly physical trauma. Please consider canceling this event for the well being of the monkeys. These monkeys belong in the wild, not strapped to dogs for human entertainment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    There appears to be no end of barbaric acts of violence and cruelty towards animals. People start with animals and proceed to humans. It’s no wonder the world is in such a sorry state of affairs.

  2. How stupid and idiotic. THIS is entertaining? Guess we need to consider the source where IGNORANCE, willful cruelty to this monkey reigns. Michigan is getting well known for its mentality. Have fun as you watch a monkey scream!

  3. This dumb event should not only be canceled but afterwards the welfare of the poor animals should be taken into account. Even if this idiotic event is canceled the poor monkeys will only be trapped and suffering in cages. This is not only inhumane but selfish of humans to use animals for senseless and mindless entertainment.

    Anyone who participates and watches a event like this one where animals are needlessly tortureed and abused are sick and sorry worthless indivisuals. Only cowards would be abusive to helpless animals because they feel so inadequate as a person. Don’t call yourself a cowboy, call yourself a coward.

  5. STOP DOING THIS! IT’S NOT FUNNY!

  6. WHAT SICK AND TWISTED BASTARD THOUGHT THIS VILE AND EVIL THING UP, AND I BET THEY ARE SO PROUD OF THEMSELVES, FOR PITIES SAKE, GET A BRAIN YOU IDIOTS.
