Comment from Carla UrquidiⓋ VEGANA🌻:


They enjoy it. They get treated better than most children. No animal abuse. The animals are well taken care of. The animals would be sent to slaughter without these event. All ignorant things to say! If the rodeo cares about these non-human animals it's only because they're profit and how convenient for the NationalWesternStockShow to be a mile away from Superior Farms which is a slaughterhouse to take these innocent beings when they are no longer profitable. (The pictures of the truck owned by the National Western Stock Show were taken by a friend while holding a vigil and bearing witness with Denver Baby Animal Save at Superior Farms Slaughterhouse.) . While “entertaining” the audience, animals are physically provoked in order to make the cowboys appear more impressive while the spectators are unaware of the suffering that the animals endure as the price of entertainment. •Calf Roping: a mounted rider yanks a calf into the air by her neck, slams her into the ground, and ties her legs together. During this performance, calves may cry out (if they can breathe), defecate from fear and stress, and suffer neck injuries and death. •Steer Busting: a rider ropes a steer with such force the steer flips in the air. The injury and death rates are so high that the Nevada State Veterinarian has condemned the practice. •Steer Wrestling: in this event the steer endures a high level of stress and can suffer ripped tendons, sprains and bruising, and even a broken neck. •Bull Riding and Saddle Bronc Riding: bucking straps, electric prods, and spurs are used to hurt the animal and aggravate him into reacting more roughly than he would naturally. Rodeos mean constant trauma for the animals forced to participate. They suffer broken ribs, backs, and legs, torn tails, punctured lungs, internal organ damage, ripped tendons, torn ligaments, snapped necks, and agonizing deaths. . How can you help?

It took everything I had in me to share these photos but I want to show you that I had a lifestyle just like yours, which means, if I could do it, then so can you. My vegan lifestyle sure gets people talking and some of the things I often hear are "I think what you're doing is great but I don't think I could ever go vegan." or simply "I could never go vegan." I believe that people make these statements because they are entirely shutting themselves down from being influenced by any argument we might make but another reason is lack of information. For over 20 years I enjoyed meat and dairy just like anyone else, I wore leather, wool, fur and cosmetics that were tested on animals. I enjoyed going to the circus, the zoo, the aquarium and Sea World was a must. I had a lifestyle just like yours. And I was guilty of saying "I love animals." as it's a phrase many of us say. As long as I can remember I have loved animals. And I know that if I was asked as a little girl if I wanted to eat the flesh of a dead cow, I would have cried in horror. But I wasn’t asked, I ate what I was given and I became mentally disconnected with certain animals. But once I started listening to facts, my only option was to really love animals and reconnect my true compassion towards them. And if you research and find out the things I now know you will most likely go from "I could never go vegan." to "The only regret I have about going vegan is not going vegan sooner." Another reason why I'm sharing these photos is to set a reminder of where most of us vegans came from. I'm not okay with telling people what to do but I am okay with telling people my opinion. It's very important to educate people and to never shut up about veganism. But don't waste your time with people who are not ready or willing to listen to our message, sadly, it's not their time yet. Instead, use your time and energy with people who are willing to listen and perhaps change. I know most people are good and most people want to do good but years of false information has kept them blind and they just lack the information we all have learned. We shouldn't judge people because we used to be them. And WE changed.

We are always taught not to discriminate against people based on their gender, ethnicity, class or sexual orientation and most of us are raised with these values. As I got older, I started to realize that the same should apply to animals who suffer greatly. Today, countless animals face a fate similar to that of humans who were forced into slavery and subjected to other injustices. These animals are tortured, abused, and neglected just as humans once were and unfortunately sometimes still are. This is why we should NEVER be silent. Always speak up against any injustice! . Some of my most favorite MartinLutherKingJr quotes: •"The fate of animals today is similar to that of humans who were subjected to slavery and other civil rights injustices—they, too, are tortured, abused, and neglected as humans once were and sometimes still are." •"One day the absurdity of the almost universal human belief in the slavery of other animals will be palpable. We shall then have discovered our souls and become worthier of sharing this planet with them." •"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." •"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." •"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." •"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it, is really cooperating with it."

Happy Birthday to my dad who is now 77 years young today👴🏻🎉 He went vegan two years ago and his transformation makes me so happy. He is always an example when I talk about veganism, he has been an inspiration to so many. Since going vegan he no longer has to poke himself with insulin and no longer has to deal with clogged arteries. My dad is proof that you're never too old to make lifestyle changes that will benefit your health, the planet and the animals. 🌱🎉🎂 VeganChabelo

Most people really do care about animals that's why we have to focus on their caring and be honest with them. We have to show them that caring means going vegan, caring means no more exploitation. 🌱

Today was my vegan anniversary! Three years already.🌱 I remember seeing posts on Instagram about the documentary Earthlings who for some reason motivated me to watch it not knowing what it was about. I watched it for the very first time on Christmas Day, I cried, I cried a lot. Later that night as I was laying down ready to go to sleep I said to myself that I will never eat animals again and that was the best Christmas gift I gave to myself three years ago. December 26, 2014 was my very first day as a vegan and today can be yours! Start your journey, you won't regret it. 🌟💖✨🌸💗🌱🌟💖✨🌸💕💗🌱🌟 �🌱🌟💖✨🌸🌱💗💕💖✨🌸🌱🌟💕💗✨

Even in fairytales we exploit animals. . If these are your first holidays as vegan, please stay strong. If anybody pressures or makes fun of you whether it's family or friends, just ignore them and don't let them get to you. Remember that you're the change we need in the world and that your new lifestyle gives so much love, respect and positivity to yourself and many others. Stay strong and stay vegan for the animals, for your health, for our planet. 🦌🦌🦌 . First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Never in my life did I imagine I was going to dedicate so much of my time helping animals and never in my life did I imagine I would be doing it with the person I love the most. Together we've been able to help rescue, foster, care and adopt so many animals and we've learned so much from each individual that has crossed our path. My most favorite thing about this lifestyle is seeing how loving, caring, respectful and compassionate Christian is to those who deserve nothing but our love and protection. I love seeing how gentle he is towards them and how respectful he is towards every single individual he meets, specially our little ones.🐄 . The one thing I can promise to my little ones is that they will never be short on love.🐶🌱💗✨💖💕🌸 @christian_the_herbivore

One of my favorite things to do is to hang out with animals and watch them do their thing. I love watching these lovely ladies peak around looking for snacks, watch them get so close to me it allows me to squeeze a lovely hug and watch how curious they get with my green hair.🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔 Although these ladies are way younger then me, I know that in their lifespan they might be older than me so I like to treat them as my elders. They teach me so much! And all I can give them in return is love, care and respect.

If you enjoy using animals for food, you must admit that you are ignoring all scientific data in support of animal intelligence. You have only one defense: it tastes good. And if your tongue is in control of your brain, then I have no reason to listen to you. 📷 @lx_alcala

They are smart, they are beautiful, they are important. . Oh how I love this sweet boy. Sweet Felix came to @luvinarms with his brother Franklin. They both were rescued from a public “educational” slaughter at a tourist attraction in Colorado Springs, CO. Unfortunately, we lost his brother Franklin. Because farmed pigs have been bred over many generations to grow very big in the shortest amount of time possible, they inevitably suffer from severe arthritis and joint issues. Franklin was less than a year old when he started having days when he could not walk. By the time he was eighteen months old, he weighed over 450 lbs and could not walk at all due to the debilitating levels of arthritis he suffered from. Slowly his organs started to grow weaker, and he passed before he was even two years old. Franklin and Felix are true ambassadors for farm animals and have inspired so many people to reconsider their food choices and widen their circle of compassion.❤️

Why is this still happening when there are so many healthy and delicious non-dairy alternatives to milk, cheese and other dairy products that use the milk that belongs to these precious babies. Repost @christian_the_herbivore We're a disgrace. How do we even allow this? They're just babies! Think about it, we do this to them because we want ice cream, cheese and milk. Things that I can eat as a vegan that taste the same and are even healthier. How does this make sense to anyone. Please stop contributing to this. Go to HowDoIGoVegan.com @jklamlam ・・・ NO PROTECTION FOR THESE BABIES. @farmusa ・Calves at Burnham Dairy suffer in extreme heat, storms, & all the Florida elements without shelter or ability to escape. These newborn babies are born into hell & many die a horrific, drawn out death. This is Dairy. This is abuse. GoVegan via @arminvestigations
