Please help end the abuse

We have presented a clear case to the government that no amount of regulating can eradicate the cruelty of rodeos and the only option is total prohibition. However, your support is needed to force the Government into action.

Please email the 'Minister for Animal Welfare' to let her know she must stop issuing permits for rodeos, at ..or ring her on (08) 8463 5680
Tell her South Australians will not tolerate animal cruelty for 'fun'.

Ask that she no longer sign a piece of paper which allows what the RSPCA's national President refers to as 'legalised cruelty', and which has now been proven in the magistrates court to be disobeying our animal protection laws. These are the same laws she is referring to in the media as the 'toughest regulations in Australia'!
