    In the past 25 years 67 horses have died or been euthanized due to injuries at the Calgary Stampede. The # goes up to 76 if you include the 9 who died while on a trail ride to the stadium (when they fell off a bridge). The calf roping is nothing but a cruel spectacle of gratuitous animal abuse.

    Fear, pain and stress are used to coerce animals into performing for the entertainment of human beings – a barbaric concept, just like bull fighting and other animals used for entertainment - like circus elephants and killer whales. Why would anyone still choose to go? Maybe you could investigate going on a holiday that doesn't include the pain, suffering and death.
