Calgary Stampede – Animal Cruelty Protest

Calgary Stampede – Animal Cruelty Protest

The D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation and the Calgary Animal Rights Effort are holding protests on the grassy area across from Stampede/Victoria Park LRT Station, MacLeod Tr. and 15 Av. S.E., Calgary on Saturday and Sunday at noon and 6:00 p.m.

Interviews can be conducted with Heather Anderson on Saturday and with Shannon Mann from the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society on Sunday.

We will be continuing our campaign calling for abolishment of the calf roping event in the Calgary Stampede. We would like to publicly thank The Vancouver Humane Society for their involvement in this campaign.

We’d like to make it known we are not against the entire Calgary Stampede; we just want an end to rodeo and chuck wagon races. Our goal is to eliminate cruelty to animals.

Let the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede be the last year for animal cruelty. There’s lots of fun and entertainment to be had at the Calgary Stampede without exploiting animals by putting them at risk of injury and death.

Once again the D.A.I.S.Y? Foundation wants to thank you, the media, for making the public aware.
