Say "No" To Rodeo China, A Joint China - U.S. Event

A coalition of 68 Chinese animal rights groups has called for the cancellation of Rodeo China, a Sino-U.S. cultural exchange event scheduled for October at Beijing's National Stadium, also known as the Bird's Nest.

Rodeo China was approved by the Chinese government in April as part of a series of Sino-American cultural exchange events. It will be the richest competition of its kind, with an unprecedented prize of $8 million. It will also be the biggest event of its kind, with around 120 cowboys, 180 horses, 36 bulls and 90 steers, primarily from the U.S. and Australia, competing in the Bird's Nest stadium.

Please join us in calling for the cancellation of Rodeo China.

 

We the undersigned,

A coalition of 68 Chinese animal rights groups has called for the cancellation of Rodeo China, a Sino-U.S. cultural exchange event scheduled for October at Beijing's Bird's Nest stadium.

Rodeo China was approved by the Chinese government in April as part of a series of Sino-American cultural exchange events. It will be the richest competition of its kind, with an unprecedented prize of $8 million. It will also be the biggest event of its kind, with around 120 cowboys, 180 horses, 36 bulls and 90 steers, primarily from the U.S. and Australia, competing in the Bird's Nest stadium.

Along with the 68 animal rights groups in China, we also believe that rodeos are inherently cruel to animals. We therefore ask that you consider cancelling this event, which is a misrepresentation of U.S. values.

Thank you for your time.
