Ban them , Give shocks from that probe and see how they enjoy it,! Jail!!!! What the hell is wrong with people. Vegas Rodeo is very popular, and people enjoy going. As other Rodeos are popular. Please help. Those horses, etc from being eletroshocked! Thank you for taking care of this abuse! Show them doing this abuse, you the Rodeo will not stand for this nor ever!
