Utah Rodeo Caught Abusing Horses
Before going to the Salinas Rodeo, SHARK videotaped at the Ute Stampede Rodeo in Nephi, Utah, where we caught men working for notorious stock contractor Cotton Rosser viciously abusing a horse.
Watch the video here:
The first section of the video shows Rosser's men abusing a horse in a chute. This video is especially important as it shows one man sticking a long wire into the horse's backside. When Rosser was recently at the Reno Rodeo, a bystander videotaped the same thing - Rosser's men assaulting a horse in the rear with a long wire. As a result she has been attacked by the Reno Rodeo and its supporters. This new evidence proves she was right; sticking metal wire into the rear of horses is now a part of Rosser's arsenal of abuse.
The video also shows Reno Rosser, son of Cotton Rosser, standing right next to some of the abused horses.
We have now proven conclusively, time and time again, that Cotton and Reno Rosser brutalize their horses. That the Ute Stampede, Reno Rodeo and Salinas Rodeo continue to employ him means that they are embracing this abuse. Rosser is simply the poster boy for how cruel rodeos truly are.
