Wackos! one thing that stuck out in their report is that the cinch strap is wrapped around the animals genitals. What a crock! have they actually seen a bulls genitals? Those things hang way back and are never cinched up. Give me a break!
I sent KMPS an email thanking them for sposoring an American Tradition!
KMPS-FM sponsors bull riding event
Seattle's country radio station, KMPS-FM (94.1) is sponsoring the Bullrider's Challenge at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe on Friday, March 28th at 8:00 pm (the event also takes place on Saturday, March 29th, 8:00 pm).
Animals used in rodeo events such as bull riding are subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment. These animals are not naturally aggressive, but are provoked into displaying wild behavior through the use of electric prods, sharp sticks and caustic ointments. A bucking strap is pulled tightly around their abdomen or made to pinch the groin and genitals. Bulls not only sustain painful and often significant injuries during shows, but are also sent to slaughter when they are rendered useless.
Please contact KMPS to discourage them from sponsoring such events in the future. Let them know that bull riding is a brutal form of entertainment, and that these animals experience pain:
