Not only were bulls never ridden in ranch work, but watching an animal be tormented is not entertainment, it’s abuse. We gathered at the Tacoma Dome to protest this inhumane and completely unnecessary form of animal cruelty.
A few folks made rude remarks, but we kept a Gandhian posture of non-violence and did not respond. One guy saw our signs and stopped to talk to us. After a while he said, “Well, you’ve opened up my mind a bit. I’m still going in to watch the show, but I’m gonna think about this when I’m in there. Thanks for being out here.”
