Keep Ban on Cruel Rodeo Event

rodeo-turismo-bahia

Target: Carmen Lucia, President of the Supreme Federal Court of Brazil

Goal: Keep the current ban on the cruel rodeo event known as vaquejada.

Recently the Supreme Federal Court of Brazil banned a cruel rodeo event known as vaquejada. During vaquejada, bulls are chased around and pinned between two men on horseback. The men will yank and pull at the bull’s tail and then force the bull on his back. The event is cruel and completely unnecessary.

While it is great that the event was recently banned, a forceful lobby is pushing for a lift of the rodeo ban due to cultural heritage. While most heritage and traditions are something to be celebrated, the vaquejada is not. This event shows some of the worst sides of humanity and does not belong in today’s world.

Sign this petition and show Brazilian officials your support of the current rodeo ban. This savage event needs to stay a part of the past.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Lucia,

The Supreme Federal Court of Brazil recently made the groundbreaking decision to ban a cruel rodeo event known as vaquejada. During vaquejada, a bull is chased around by two men on horseback, pinned between them, has his tail yanked on, then is forced to the ground on his back. The event often leads to fatal injuries and torn off tails.

The recent ban is great news, however a strong lobby is hoping for a lift on the ban due to cultural heritage. While most customs and traditions are something to celebrate, the vaquejada is not. The event shows some of the most savage and cruel sides of humanity, and it does not belong in today’s world.

Please consider keeping the current ban on vaquejada. Animals should not be tortured and killed for human entertainment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
