BC Green Party Opposes Rodeo Cruelty

VCARE is very pleased to annouce that the BC Green Party held it’s AGM on May 31st 2014 and voted on a resolution to protect rodeo animals. With an 80% ‘yes’ it passed! The wording of the resolution is:

WHEREAS many rodeo events (for example, but not limited to: calfroping, steerwrestling, wildhorseracing, wildcowmilking, teamroping, bullriding, barebackriding, saddlebroncriding, and broncbusting) use fear, stress, and pain to encourage animals to perform;

AND WHEREAS these events put animals at undue risk of injury:

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that inhumane rodeo events that use fear, stress,
and pain to encourage animals to perform should be prohibited in British
Columbia.

Thank you BC Greens for standing up for animals in entertianment!
