Protest planned as Arena hosts Professional Bull Riders event tonight

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Last Chance for Animals (LCA), along with the Humane Farming Association (HFA) and SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK), today renewed calls for the Los Angeles City Council to pass a proposed ordinance that would ban rodeo Tools of Torture, including electric prods, flank straps, and spurs. The call comes just hours before Arena hosts the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Pluto TV Invitational event in Los Angeles.

“The animal abuse that has lined the pockets of the rodeo industry has gone on for far too long,” said Chris DeRose, Founder and President of Last Chance for Animals. “The rodeo’s latest PR blitz shows that it will stop at nothing to defend its barbaric practices and protect its profits. Rodeo lobbyists claim that bulls forced to compete in riding competitions have won ‘the animal lottery.’ Suffering gruesome injuries and being subjected to Tools of Torture hardly resembles hitting the lottery. These animals are victims of abuse for the sake of entertainment and greed, plain and simple. It’s time for Los Angeles to take a stand.”

LCA and other animal rights activists are hosting a rally from 6p.m. to 8 p.m. at Arena today in support of the Los Angeles ordinance to ban rodeo Tools of Torture. More than 6,000 people have already signed a petition calling on the Arena to cancel today’s Professional Bull Riders competition. For more information about the protest, please visit:
