Stop the American Rodeo In China!
To the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, Chairman Wu Bang Guo Dear Chairman Wu, I am writing to you to express my greatest concern about your intention to bring American rodeo to China as part of the “American culture”. What you may not be aware of is that rodeo is NOT a part of the culture of most Americans. Americans in general are compassionate people and rodeos are a part of a culture that most Americans are disgraced and embarrassed about, not proud of. I urge you to reconsider this decision to bring American rodeo to your country. Years of investigations have revealed horrific animal cruelty in American rodeos. Animals not only suffer during this despised spectacle, but many are also killed during the event. We do not wish this to Chinese citizens or anyone else in a world already full of violence. If you would like to bring American culture to China, please find a vast number of events that we are proud of, and which truly reflects the compassion of American people and culture. The Rodeo organizers say that they have humane laws and regulations that protect the performing animals, but this is what they want people to believe. Just as a simple example, this past July 24, 2011, a horse was cruelly killed in a rodeo performance in Cheyenne, Wyoming. These are not a rare occurrence. The links below show the aforementioned horse’s death and a second horse injured all in the same event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zwfcv-F89s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjWsdKJV2HI Please reject American rodeo in China as it will only reflect poorly on your country.
