Should rodeos be banned?

Rodeos have been a part of American culture since the Old West. But with allegations of animal cruelty becoming a regularity, many are wondering whether the tradition is too cruel to keep up. Animals are subjected to being thrown around and other types of abuse that many do not see. If animals can't be treated with respect, the sport should end. Still, many rodeos have taken steps to make events more humane. Sometimes, the animals are treated better than people. What do you think? 🐂 🐎

Any "sport" where people cheer the poor treatment of animals should be banned. These animals had no choice in being poked, prodded and tied up. The ways these innocent creatures are treated should not be overlooked for the sake of entertainment. 

Part of being human is evolving past certain things. This is one of those cultural pillars that need to crumble. Ban rodeos forever.

People who speak ill of rodeos haven't been to one. It was one of the best sporting events to attend. You go with family and friends and watch blue collar Americans work. These animals are treated with utmost respect.

 At the professional level, their treatment is regulated and tracked with care. Rodeos are as American as apple pie. They should not be banned.
