YES!! I do not support the use of animals for entertainment. Usually, in "sports," the animal is run to exhaustion or, in the case of "rodeo," literally abused for the crowd to gawk at and cheer. Young calfs are chased by aggressive, mean kids then roped and forced to slam to the ground and tied up in the heat and dust to the roar of the crowd. Bulls genitalia are pulled and squeezed (as are 'broncos') which makes them more aggressive and so, more "entertaining" for the crowd. Grayhound racing is obscene, oftentimes using live 'bait' to encourage the dogs to run faster. The dogs are thrown away after they are no longer entertaining. Bears, chimps, etc. were not born for our entertainment. Yet, we continue to act as thought these living sentient beings are toys for our pleasure.
Any time we force an animal to act other than naturally, we are abusing that creature. If we cage, prod, or in anyway taunt an animal to achieve our desired response; we are acting outside of that animal's natural tendency.
Shame on us~!
