LCA's Bull Riding Protest at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Was a Success!

2.25.19On Saturday, February 23, 2019, LCA held a demonstration at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to protest the Professional Bull Riders' (PBR) Unleash the Beast Tour showcasing its exhibition of animal cruelty for their "Iron Cowboy" bull riding competition.

The demonstration drew a large crowd of passionate animal advocates to protest the abhorrent cruelty of bull riding — a "sport" that abuses animals for profit. Bulls, which are generally tame creatures that must be provoked into battle, are routinely fitted with tight, painful flank straps, shocked with 5,000-volt electric prods, and kicked with spurs in order to encourage aggressive behavior. As the bulls buck wildly to rid themselves of the rider and these tools of torment, their weight couples with their unnatural movement often leads to horrific injuries and even death.
