Letter to the editor: Tradition, history not grounds for animal abuse

We want to clarify our position as protesters of the rodeo and the exploitative non-human entertainment industry at large.

We feel that given the facts of the inevitable deaths and provocative means that ensure a performance for humans' amusement, there is no way to justify non-humans' forced involvement in such barbaric activities. We view the rodeo as exploitative, since the non-humans exist as expendable entities to draw in ticket sales.
