General Election VOTE: November 6, 2018

 

 

May 2018

Hello Councilman Rev. Diaz-

I congratulate you for supporting the Cinco de Mayo celebration,

HOWEVER, as you may already know, to get the bulls worked up so that they jump all over and "put on a good show" their testicles are often bound. This is painful, alarming and stressful for the bulls, causing great outrage and panic in the bulls. In a word, this is ABUSE. (Look carefully the next time you see a rodeo or bull fight- you will see a rope running over the bull's back and in front of the back legs.

THEREFORE - PLEASE CONDEMN THIS PRACTICE AND DO NOT ALLOW IT AGAIN IN OUR COMMUNITY!

Even in cases where the testicles are not bound, being shipped, unloaded and kept in an unfamiliar environment, with strange people and large crowds, strange and loud noises, is very stressful for any animal and should not be undertaken. You might say that these bulls are "used to it" as this is their life, but it is not a natural or pleasant life for them and contracting with such performance companies is immoral.

Thank you for considering my thoughts.


PS- I just bought a St Francis of Assisi statue thismornign for my garden - I'm sure he would not approve of Rodeos with bulls nor bullfights!
