No prosecution over rodeo injury

AUSTRALIAN Professional Rodeo Association administrator Steve Hilton has welcomed the RSPCA's statement there were no grounds for prosecution of the organisation after a bull had to be euthanased at a recent Warwick Rodeo.

"There was a lot of publicity after the bull suffered a broken leg in a freak accident," Mr Hilton said.

"Claims the injured bull was in the arena for 30 minutes are false. The time was, in fact, 11 minutes."

The peak rodeo body conducts regular animal welfare clinics across the nation.

"Figures show there is one serious injury causing death or euthanasia of an animal each 8300 times an animal is used at an APRA rodeo," Mr Hilton said.
