    Rodeos are barbaric. I don’t understand how anyone can consider a rodeo a form of entertainment. Animals are being abused right in front of your eyes at a rodeo. Ezequiel Herrera needs that electric prod used on him! There is no humane treatment in a rodeo! NONE!

  2. Alice Knight says:

    This individual needs to be taught a real lesson and set an example for other rodeo goers licensed or not. Each person knowingly present at this venue are just as guilty. This is a deplorable form of entertainment. Please ensure the harshest penalty is implemented and that any kind of rodeo do not use this tactic of control over any animal again.
