On the 23rd of September the Australian Lugarno Lions Club, with the approval of Hurstville City Council, organised a rodeo as the main attraction of their annual Spring Festival. The Australian Bushmen's Campdraft and Rodeo Association (ABCRA) invited themselves to the party and demonstrated how to be cruel to animals during a bull-riding and saddle bronco riding event.
Although the supposedly one time rodeo wasn't canceled, Hurstville City Council now also hinted they are thinking about making it an annual event.
Please join the protest - which already saw 2,000 protest mails sent in less than 4 days! To find out what Australian rodeos are all about and to sign the petition, please check out 3dayz.com/hurstville-rodeo.
