Speaking Out Against Bull Riding

For the third year in a row, NHARL volunteers had vegan boots on the ground at the SNHU Arena in Manchester to protest the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Tour.

The League led two impactful demonstrations before each scheduled show, Friday, Dec. 15, and Saturday, Dec. 16.

Our posters invited eventgoers to consider the experience of the bull and the very real possibility that animals could get injured and potentially euthanized that evening.

New this year, we also showed video of bulls getting hurt at PBR events, which played on a loop as eventgoers walked past.

While most ticketholders were not visibly receptive to the message that bull riding is animal abuse, we succeeded in handing out more than 200 flyers (shown below), reinforcing the fact the bull riding isn’t fun for everyone.
