Ac­tivists picket coun­try rodeo

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

PROTESTERS have braved mon­soonal-like rains to picket a rodeo west of Can­berra.

An­i­mal rights ac­tivists held signs like “Their fear, your fun. WTF?” and “Roped, slammed, choked”, out­side the Quean­beyan Rodeo near Bun­gen­dore yes­ter­day.

Events in­cluded calf rop­ing, in which rid­ers com­pete to lasso and hogtie a calf by three legs in the short­est time.

An­i­mal Jus­tice Party mem­ber Chris Sutevski said such “en­ter­tain­ment” was “not nec­es­sary these days”.
