The animal welfare group "SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness" or SHARK presented new allegations of animal cruelty at this year's Reno Rodeo.
During a press conference this morning, the group played videos they say show horses shocked by people employed by several companies at last month's rodeo.
They allege animal handlers used a prod that can deliver a shock of up to 10,000 volts. And that the prods were hidden under gloves to allow the animals to be given more painful shocks within view of rodeo judges.
