Sloan , Karen. "Ban Mexican Rodeo Events Debated Is it animal cruelty or a cultural connection?." Omaha World pg. B.112 13 2007 December 14, 2007

Nebraska is trying to ban Mexican cowboys from holding Mexican Rodeos in their state. Im Mexican Rodeos they include Steer tailing, horse tripping and calf roping. none of which I believe in. they a can cause rope burns, abrasions, dislocations, torn tendons and ligaments and broken legs. Veterinarian's disagreeded weather the animals were getting hurt during these events. the rate of injury is far less that one percent. but this sport is also already illegal in seven states. The cowboys in this artical were cited for animal cruelty in July for having five malnourished horses, with extensive scaring on there legs.The men were pleated guilty, each were fined $900 and the horses were confiscated. haha.
