TV Icon Joins PETA in Urging Companies to End Promotions of Deadly Rodeo
Calgary, Alberta -- Just days after speaking out against The Price Is Right's recent promotion of the Calgary Stampede and Rodeo, iconic television
host Bob Barker has fired off another letter on PETA's behalf to the
event's main sponsors—including Bell Canada, General Motors of Canada Limited,
Anheuser-Busch International, and TransAlta Corporation—to urge them to turn
their backs on the notoriously violent and deadly rodeo. In the letter, Barker
points out that horses routinely die in the stampede—one had to be euthanized
on the first day of last year's spectacle, and six horses died in 2010's event
alone. Many more sustain painful injuries.
"The Calgary Stampede has long been synonymous
with animal abuse," writes Barker. "I hope you will agree that no
animal deserves to suffer like this in the name of a tradition that should have
died out with the covered wagon's last ride. My friends at PETA and I hope to
hear that you will no longer sponsor this event."
