Ask NBC Todays Show to expose the truth about the cruel and deadly rodeo

Matt Lauer of NBC's Morning Today Show at Houston Rodeo As rodeo clown and that's not funny..

SHARK was appalled to find out that Matt Lauer - co-anchor of the NBC Today Show was a "clown" at the Houston Rodeo - See video:Houston Rodeo: Matt Lauer Steps Into the Ring

This was part of the Today Show's "Dangerous Jobs" segment - Matt is quoted as saying he "agreed to try his hand at one of the scariest professions in the world" - rodeo clown

What!? Matt considers a rodeo clown a profession and a scary one at that!? How about trying "his hand" at a truly, scary profession like a U S soldier over in the war zone, or a firefighter, or a police officer or a prison guard- Something honorable instead of a role in a western circus where animals are being abused, killed and the truth covered-up




Shame on Marr Lauer and the NBC Todays staff for glorifying rodeo!! abuse


We are  so appalled that Matt Lauer and the rest of the team used your show to  glorify Rodeo by calling Rodeo Bullriding  a "dangerous sport" and the Bulls a "dangerous beast"  when we all know its far  from being a  real "sport"  and the animals are not "dangerous beast".  Rodeo is extreme abuse of animals that is  unfortunately  legalized. Those of us who love these gentle creatures  fight so hard to try and abolish rodeo which  is not easy  and  what makes it more difficult is when shows like yours unknowingly (I hope) televise segment of Rodeo as if its a real "sports"  to be "proud" of. There is nothing to be proud of  abusing and tormenting gentle herbivores.  Personally, I and  many others  feel Matt Lauer  and NBC Todays Show should know by now the reality of Rodeo and the horrible cruelty that is involved.  We would so appreciate if Matt Lauer and NBC would do another segment exposing the truth about Rodeo Cruelty . Watch the video, look at the photos and also visit SHARK  website  where you can learn everything about Rodeo cruelty, abuse and corruption. 


Matt Lauer claimed he had the "guts to be a rodeo clown," now SHARK is challenging Matt to have the "guts to deal with the cruelty and corruption of rodeos"

We are  requesting that the NBC Today staff of Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, Ann Curry and Al Roker match the 8 minutes and 44 seconds spent glorifying the rodeo with 8 minutes and 44 seconds exposing the cruelty and corruption of rodeos- In other words, providing "fair and balanced" reporting on an issue like media is suppose to do

Write the Today Staff and let them know what you think about this issue and encourage them to expose the truth about cruel and deadly rodeos.

Please visit  this  websites: RodeoCruelty. com and TheCruelTruth. com to find the truth about rodeos

 Sign our petition  and leave a message telling what Matt and NBC did was wrong and should expose the real Rodeo!
