Van Horn Texas Chamber of Commerce: DONKEY ROPING MUST BE STOPPED

Donkey roping is an extremely cruel “sport” where the donkey is shocked with a cattle prod until he tries to run away. Once in motion two people on horseback run the donkey down, one throwing a rope around its neck, the other around its rear legs. Once roped the donkey is then stretched between the two horses. Broken bones and death are all too common during these events.

    I really believe that the idiot at the chamber of commerce, as well as those who purchased tickets should be the entertainment attraction, where they are prodded so that they end up on the end of the rope. Now that is entertainment i would purchase a ticket to see.

  2. I don’t understand why it’s okay to do it to cattle and horses, but not donkeys. ALL forms of “sport roping” are cruel, Full stop. Goat roping is another idiocy dreamed up by the mentally challenged. Rodeo sucks…
