Animal Rights Activists Rally Against Calgary Stampede's Rodeo Events

Animal rights activists staged a protest outside the Stampede Grounds on July 8th, condemning the rodeo and calf roping events and urging the Calgary Stampede to abandon them entirely. Dozens of protestors gathered to express their opposition to these activities, which they deemed as animal abuse leading to unnecessary deaths. Heather Anderson, the protest organizer, emphasized that Calgary should be known for compassion and humane treatment of animals, not for rodeo events.
