On Saturday March 31, 2012, there was peaceful protest calling out Evenko and the Centre Bell for presenting the Professional Bull Riders Canada (PBR Canada). More than a dozen animal activists gathered front of the Bell Centre to exert their right to publicly protest the shameful practices that take place in a rodeo. According to PBR Canada the bulls used in rodeos today are not totally feral.  They are tame and gentle enough so that they can be handled and transported easily. It is the abuse they receive, and the pain they are in, which makes them buck. Irritants such as burrs are placed under the flank strap to make them buck and kick.  Electric prods and shocking devices may also be used on the bulls.

    The ignorant always turn to violence to get there way when open discussion and actual thinking and using their brain is needed. What a shame.

    ELECTRIC PRODS !! ALL THIS ABUSE TO INNOCENT ANIMALS IS A DISGRACE TO HUMANITY !!! NO DIFFERENCE WHETHER THE ANIMALS FERRAL OR NOT, THEY FEEL PAIN ! ALL THE SICK PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD WHO TREAT ANY ANIMAL WITH CRUELTY ON ANY LEVEL WILL HAVE TO FACE THE CREATOR OF LIFE, HE WILL MAKE THEM PAY !

    You know, when you see this kind of idiot response to a peaceful protest, it tells you a lot about the kind of people who feel emboldened by being around pseudo-“cowboy” activity. Real men never have to engage in defense of their own entertainment. They are usually peaceful and confident. The losers who need to attack and get violent with women who are legally voicing an opinion are the kind of cowards who can’t claim manhood. Men in that crowd, on either side, already know that. So do women.

    It does give more ammunition to protesters of these events so all of it ended up being counterproductive to the industry which hosts it. The operators need to show some control or security over their own ticket holders. That is the their responsibility and their bill to pay. No citizen should pay bills for police control for these events. That is the cost of doing business for the event originators. They have those kinds of fans.
