Ban the barbaric bull-riding event in Halifax
Tony Payzant started this petition to Scotiabank Center.

Bull-riding, a rodeo event, involves a rider attempting to stay mounted on a bucking bull for a set time. A “flank strap” is tied around the bull’s sensitive hindquarters to make him buck. The bull bucks wildly, clearly being tormented by the flank strap and by the desire to get the rider off. Bulls do not behave this way outside a rodeo arena. There is also video evidence of bulls at rodeo events being abused prior to release into the arena.

Halifax is set to host a bull-riding event on 26 May at Scotiabank Centre. This event must be stopped.
