Animal Advocates of Arizona (AAAZ) Message Board › TAKE ACTION: CBS's Price Is Right Rodeo trip prize!
The Calgary Stampede Rodeo in Canada is a cruel & violent event wherein numerous animals are injured & killed annually. On February 1, 2012, TV's "The Price is Right" gave away a trip to the Calgary Stampede Rodeo as a prize.
"More than 80 animals have died at the Calgary Stampede since 1986," reported Peter Fricker of the Vancouver Humane Society in Vancouver, BC.
Appalled that his former show was supporting animal cruelty, former host, executive producer and TV legend Bob Barker released the following statement: "I am very sorry that The Price is Right producers have chosen to align themselves with an activity that is cruel and violent. Rodeo does not honor western heritage in the US, Canada or anywhere else. Rodeos torment, injure and kill animals. I hope PIR decision makers will immediately reassess their very bad decision."
