For the mere sake of 'entertainment', animals in rodeos are physically provoked into displaying 'wild' behaviour which can result in severe injuries and even death. Due to the undeniable cruelty, rodeos are completely banned in Britain and in parts of Europe and the United States — but not in Australia. Tormenting frightened and unwilling animals in an attempt to demonstrate the 'brute strength' of man is a spectacle that has no place in modern society. Please join other caring Australians who object to animal abuse by pledging never to support these cruel events.



This pledge plays a vital role — but you can have an even greater impact for animals today. Here’s how:

  • Contact your local council and encourage them to ban rodeos from performing on council land (note that rodeos are permitted in all states and territories except for the ACT).
  • Send a letter to your local MP, as well as to the editor of your local newspaper expressing your concerns about the cruelty of rodeos.
  • Send this video to anyone you know who may be considering attending a rodeo.
  • Learn more about rodeos.
