The cruel and abusive “sport” of bull-riding is once again coming to Madison Square Garden, January 4-6th. Please join NYCLASS and the Animal Cruelty Exposure Fund in protesting this vile event, and send a message to our elected officials that we want this kind of animal exploitation prohibited in NYC.
These domestic bulls are tormented and hurt in order to be made to buck wildly—this isn’t a sport, it is animal cruelty. Yet this is a popular event at Madison Square Garden, so our presence is needed! The bulls are also kept outside in open trailers in the freezing cold.
Opening night is FRIDAY, Jan 4th, our protest will start at 6:45pm. Please show up at 6:45 because the bull-riding contest starts at 7:45. Saturday, our protest will start promptly at 5:45, and on Sunday our protest will start at 12:45. It's important that we be there an hour before the show starts. Posters will be provided but feel free to bring your own.
