Petition: Ban Professional Bull Riders from State Owned Venues
Shocking video of bull with broken bones dragged from George Mason University EagleBank Arena
During a Professional Bull Riders Challenger Series event, a bull fell to the ground immediately, crushing his back right leg, after exploding from the chute with a rider on his back. Video captured the injured bull trying in vain to stand, appearing to further fracture the leg, before collapsing helplessly to the ground. The bull was then dragged from the arena by a rope tangled around his neck and legs.
The tragic incident occured at at George Mason University EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia and was captured on video. It is graphic and may not be appropriate for all audiences.
Sign the petition below urging inhumane events, like Professional Bull Riders traveling events, be banned from state and municipally owned venues.
