Demand Coca-Cola Stop Sponsoring Deadly Animal Cruelty

Target: James Quincey, CEO of Coca Cola

Goal: Stop sponsoring events where animal cruelty is involved.

A steer’s neck was reportedly broken while being roped during a rodeo where Coca Cola was a main sponsor. Coca-Cola has claimed for years that it has company policies that are against supporting animal cruelty. However, Coca-Cola was undoubtedly there to sponsor one of America’s largest and oldest rodeos, the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, where an innocent steer died from his injuries. Animals are frequently injured or killed during these events. Coca-Cola admitted that it will occasionally sponsor other rodeos as long as the animals have ready access to quality veterinary care. This isn’t good enough. The animals are electrically prodded at these events, roped, and put under extreme distress.

SHARK, which stands for Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, has documented the horses, steers, and calves killed at this event since 2005. The members say that numerous animals suffer at these events just for the contestants to win money. This is a selfish, disgusting event that no company with any morals should support. Please sign this petition to demand that Coca-Cola stop supporting these events that are full of animal cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Quincey,

Coca-Cola continues to sponsor cruel rodeo events, despite the blatant animal cruelty that’s involved. For instance, Coca Cola sponsored America’s largest and oldest rodeo, the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, where an innocent steer’s neck was broken while being roped. The poor animal died.

Coca-Cola claims that sponsoring animal cruelty goes against their policies. However, there was a Coca-Cola sign at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo that read “The Official Soft Drink of Cheyenne Frontier Days Welcomes Rodeo Fans.” We are appalled and disgusted that Coca-Cola would sponsor such brutal events. We, the undersigned, demand that you withdraw all sponsorship to this cruel rodeo immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    stop animal cruelity and make beverages vegan!

  2. The violent injury and resulting tragic death of this poor steer reveals just how cruel and violent rodeos really are.
    Coca Cola has been lying to us. Their support of rodeos is support of animal cruelty.
    Coca Cola also supports the horrible iditarod dog races in Alaska, in which many dogs have died and many more been injured.

  3. END THE SUPPORT OF ABUSE ON GREAT HORSES COCA COLA NOW.

  4. Stop sponsoring these cruel violent events. It’s not doing your reputation any good. There are many decent events that do good and raise money for worthy causes which would welcome your sponsorship. That would leave you in a much better light. Decent people do not want to watch animals being abused- don’t lower yourselves!
