Editorial: Rodeo fans, Consider the animals

East Oregonian, April 19, on why rodeo fans should consider welfare of animals: A bill that bans horse tripping yet reaffirms the “right to rodeo” has passed the Oregon Senate, with backing from the Pendleton Round-Up and its supporters. It is a change in stance from the Round-Up board, who were against a similar proposal in 2011 because they thought it may be the first step down a slippery slope to outlawing calf and steer roping — two of the rodeo’s signature events.
