The group Showing Animals Kindness and Respect -- or SHARK - has video of broncos being shocked from the last two Reno Rodeos.
A method used to get them to buck.
"They are rearing back in pain. They are quite shocked and I'm sure they're in quite a bit of pain because I've been shocked with these devices to see what they go through and it is not pleasant."
SHARK says the devices send up to 5,000 volts of electricity. Rodeo officials admit -- they have been used in the past -- but say they are harmless and unnecessary.
