To the people that do want rodeos banned: the people that own the bulls take great care of them. The bulls get treated like family. Riding a bull is just like riding a horse, so if you want rodeos banned don't get on another horse again!
Bulls and horses have a lot in common. And for your information people don't just rope the bulls around the horns and toss them around.
There is no cruelty at all. We are not like bull fighters in Mexico where they actually kill the bull. Same with horse - we don't ride them and then discard them... We make life time bond till the end. We do it to celebrate old country history. It is a TRADITION.
Besides rodeo stock and horses are taken better care of than most household pets.
