Rodeos: Time to ban them in New Zealand?
Wednesday, 16 March, 2016
Some say rodeos are cruel, gruesome and just plain nasty.
A petition to ban the practice is being presented to Parliament tomorrow.
For some people it is a way of life and entertainment — while others believe it is animal cruelty.
Veterinarian Dr Elsa says it causes a lot of pain and distress to animals for the sake of entertaining people.
“There is no benefit for the animal at all,” says the SPCA.
