STOP DONKEY ROPING!!!!!!!
The Van Horn Texas Chamber of Commerce is hosting an event that features donkey roping.
Donkey roping is an extremely cruel 'sport' where the donkey is shocked with a cattle prod until he tries to run away, once he is running people on horseback run the donkey down, throwing a rope around it's neck, and another one around its rear legs. Once roped the donkey is then stretched between two horses. Broken bones and death are all too common during these events.
Please help the donkeys and help stop this event, email,make phone calls...this is unacceptable. Contact the Van Horn Texas Chambers of Commerce and let them know how you feel about this. Call them at 432-282-2043 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rodeo is animal abuse. Not what I understand a real cowboy to be.
