A video showing a dog being forced to participate in a rodeo celebration has sparked outrage among animal lovers.
In the video shared in social media, a dog can be seen being tied to the back of a bull by his legs and then forced to ‘ride’ the bull. The dog can be seen terrified while the bull tries to shake him in the arena for the amusement of the crowd.
The footage was taken during the annual Our Lady of the Assumption festivities in the Pichirhua district, Peru.
According to neighbours, this happens every year and usually the dog chosen is the stray that ’caused the most trouble’ in the community during the year. They also explained that before dogs, a condor was usually tied to the bull.
