SALINAS, Calif.-- A steer died Friday after it was trampled by a horse in the steer wrestling event at the rodeo, the California Rodeo Salinas confirmed. 

It happened during what is called slack time. The rodeo often has too many cowboys then there are slots available. So they compete and post their scores during these slack times. And activists say this is an example of the animal cruelty at these rodeos. 

Steve Hindi recorded the whole thing. He's the president of Showing Animals Respect and Kindness or SHARK. He says he's outraged by what he sees at rodeos everywhere

"A lot of people have fun but they are having fun at the expense of the animals," Hindi said. "The animals are literally dying to entertain them."
