During Saturday nights Cowtown Rodeo in New Jersey, 9 year old rodeo horse Buck died after 8 seconds of wild bucking due to an aneurysm of the aorta. Third generation Cowtown owner Grant Harris claims that although 10,000 volt animal rods are still fixed to the inside of their chutes, the horses are not electrocuted in order to trigger wild bucking. Contrary to Harris’ claims the horses are not shocked, animal rights group SHARK have released a video which shows the Cowtown Rodeo administering 10,000 volts of electricity to horses during their shows. After suffering a seizure which saw Duke die in front of a crowd of spectators, witnesses claim the horse was later pulled from the ring by a tractor. This is just one more example where the care and concern for an animal’s welfare is overruled by the value of money and entertainment.
