 Protest the Rodeo



The rodeo is a series of events that pit human participants against terrifed animals trying to get away from something that is causing them fear, pain, and discomfort. The animals used include bulls, steers, calves, and horses. These animals have been trained to perform, nothing about the rodeo is natural. Animal injuries include internal organ damage, ripped tendons, broken backs, broken legs, and ripped tendons.

You can help rodeo animals. Show up at rodeos and bull riding events in your town and protest. Reach out to us if you need t-shirts, posters, pamphlets or banners.



  • Create a Facebook event page to get the word out.
  • Create posters. Slogan ideas: Only Bullies Ride Bulls, Stop Bull Riding, Bull Riding is Cruel, Rodeo Animals are Electrocuted, Tormented, and Terrified.
  • Protest at the entrance of the venue.
  • Plan to protest for 2 hours before the bull riding event starts.
  • Tell your local newspaper, TV news station, and radio station about your protest.
  • Pass out our Rodeo B.S. Fact Sheet. Download and print it here. 
  • Do not engage anti-protestors.
  • Keep focused and strong for the animals.
  • Take photos of your protest, post on social media, and tag LCA. 
  • Know your protester rights:
    • Your rights are strongest in what are known as “traditional public forums,” such as streets, sidewalks, and parks. You also likely have the right to speak out on other public property, like plazas in front of government buildings, as long as you are not blocking access to the government building or interfering with other purposes the property was designed for.
    • Private property owners can set rules for speech on their property. The government may not restrict your speech if it is taking place on your own property or with the consent of the property owner.
    • Counterprotesters also have free speech rights. Police must treat protesters and counterprotesters equally. Police are permitted to keep antagonistic groups separated but should allow them to be within sight and sound of one another.
    • When you are lawfully present in any public space, you have the right to photograph anything in plain view, including federal buildings and the police. On private property, the owner may set rules related to photography or video.
