Next summer, in June of 2020, MSG is planning on hosting the first full blown rodeo in NYC in 30 years. Tickets are already on sale. Tell MSG, NOT IN OUR BACK YARD. As it is, MSG hosts the barbaric Professional Bull Riders (PBR) event every year, usually in January. A full blown rodeo, however, makes bull riding look tame. A rodeo is torture and terror for its defenseless victims, many of whom are just babies, Many animals suffer excruciating serious injuries requiring euthanasia. All of the victims are unspeakably terrorized. It is unfathomable that anyone could consider this violence "entertainment."
NYC is considering over 16 animal welfare and protection bills. How can we possibly allow this barbarism to take place in our city? We can't. We are planning on protesting many times between now and the scheduled event and are looking at other paths to shut this down. Please join ACEF, LION, and NYClass at our first protest on July 31. Signs will be provided, but please bring your own if you can!
