Urge Brazilian Officials to Uphold Ban on Cruel Rodeos!

The Supreme Federal Court of Brazil recently made the long-awaited right decision to ban the cruel rodeo event known as vaquejada, sparing bulls the unconscionable terror and torment of being chased around an arena, pinned between two horses, violently yanked by their tails (which are sometimes even torn off), and forced to the ground on their backs—often causing fatal injuries. However, this victory for bulls is now in jeopardy. A strong lobby is pushing for a change to Brazil's constitution in order to reinstate vaquejada under the guise of cultural heritage.

Bulls in Brazil need your voice! Please contact Brazilian officials and urge them to uphold the ban on vaquejada.

Subject: Please Uphold the Ban on Vaquejada!

Dear [Decision maker],

Brazil's Supreme Federal Court made the right decision when it banned vaquejada, sparing bulls the unconscionable terror and torment of being chased around an arena, pinned between two horses, violently yanked by their tails (which are sometimes even torn off), and forced to the ground on their backs--often causing fatal injuries. I understand that a group is now lobbying for vaquejada to be constitutionally protected under the guise of cultural heritage. Abusing animals is wrong and does not bring honor to any culture.

Please continue to protect bulls by upholding the ban on vaquejada. Thank you for your consideration of this important matter.
