Stop Cruel Monkey Rodeo

Target: Randy Whitaker, General Manager of the Harrisburg Senators

Goal: Stop the Harrisburg Senators’ upcoming “cowboy monkey rodeo.”

The Harrisburg Senators, a minor league baseball team, is planning on hosting a “cowboy monkey rodeo” at one of its upcoming games. “Cowboy monkey rodeos” are incredibly stressful events for all the animals involved and can lead to serious physical injuries. It is time to stop this needless suffering.

During “cowboy monkey rodeos,” a capuchin monkey is forcibly strapped onto a dog who sprints around a track while making sudden stops and quick turns. These jerky movements are frightening and even painful for the monkey and can lead to injury. The lack of control and the loud crowd make the event even more stressful.

The president of Minor League Baseball has condemned using animals for entertainment and other minor league teams have canceled after learning about the horrors these animals face. Sign this petition and demand the Harrisburg Senators also cancel this cruel event.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Whitaker,

Your team has upcoming plans to host a “cowboy monkey rodeo.” This event is barbaric and even the president of Minor League Baseball has condemned using animals for entertainment. It is time to put an end to this unnecessary cruelty.

During “cowboy money rodeos,” a capuchin monkey is strapped onto a dog who sprints around the arena, makes sudden stops, and makes quick turns. These jerky movements can lead to serious physical injuries. In addition, the lack of control and the overwhelming crowd make this event incredibly stressful and mentally debilitating.

Please consider canceling your plans to host a “cowboy monkey rodeo.” Many other minor league teams have canceled after learning about the cruelty behind it. These animals should not suffer for human entertainment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    ANIMALS, INCLUDING MONKEYS, ARE NOT ENTERTAINERS, NOR ARE THEY TO BE PLACED ON EXHIBITION!!! ANIMAL WELFARE OVER PROFITS!! STOP THESE INHUMANE MONKEY RODEOS PERMANENTLY NOW!!

  2. ban the animal acts.

  3. This hair-brained, stupid idea shows a lack of compassion and understanding of how such idiotic human activities cause animal suffering and cruelty. Ban this terrible idea. The yahoos who came up with this should get a life–or better yet, a Lobotomy.

  4. Very very cruel and heartless. The poor monkeys and dogs need rescuing from the horrible people abusing them.
