We held our first rodeo protest at the Mid Northern Rodeo in Whangarei in 2016. We’ll continue our peaceful protests at this event until rodeo is banned in NZ for good.
Direct Animal Action is taking a stand against Rodeo across New Zealand. We will be pushing for a nationwide ban on rodeos. Rodeos are inherently cruel and forces animals into stressful situations, risking their well-being purely for entertainment. This so called ‘family entertainment’ is nothing but a display of how to bully defenseless animals.
