Jack Booco: Praise for rodeo article

I would like to praise Mr. Tom Ross for a very well written, factual article in the Saturday, July 1 Steamboat Today — “Misty-eyed rodeo bulls chill out before big weekend.”

As a rodeo athlete for more than 25 years,and an active member on the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series Board of Directors, I have heard multiple times that our industry mistreats the animals. Mr. Ross went the extra mile, behind the scenes, to acquire factual data. He took the time to properly educate himself about our industry.

Thank you Mr. Ross for not casting stones, but doing your “homework” and publishing an article with very accurate information. Kudos to you sir.
