Calgary Stampede – Good or Bad???

I suppose some might say I have no right to an opinion on this subject. They could be right for I have no first hand knowledge of the Stampede, I have never attend one and have only seen bits and pieces on television. However it strikes me as totally unnecessary and if it is considered entertainment, then it borders on the Roman Games where Christians were thrown to the lions. I see it as comparable to bull fighting, which is equally cruel and one sided. Yesterday another animal was killed in the cause of entertainment, of course the owners deeply regretted the death so that should make it okay. A few years ago horses were killed when a chuck wagon race went wrong in a horrendous collision. When will we humans realize the value of life, all life is important. It turns my stomach to think this is done in the cause of entertainment. Animals are beautiful creatures and have as much right to life as we do. Why do people need or want these blood sports, indeed not sport at all, its always one sided in our favour. Canadians should be ashamed to support this cruel spectacle.
That’s my rant for the day
God Bless and keep reading.
