A bull suffered a broken leg during a bull-riding event at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Saturday, December 9, causing outrage among animal rights activists. The RSPCA called for a ban on the sport after the animal reportedly broke its hind leg and was later euthanased, according to the Adelaide Advertiser. The event was held by Professional Bullriders Australia. “We are shocked and appalled by this incident and our inspectors will launch an investigation,” RSPCA South Australia said in a post to Facebook. “This bull’s injury was unnecessary and could have been avoided. RSPCA South Australia will gather a team of senior legal counsel to investigate what can be done to change laws to make bull riding and rodeos illegal across the state.” A petition was also started. This footage shows the bull continuing to buck after the rider has fallen off, despite the injury to its leg. Credit: Anonymous via Storyful
