Editor,The June 20 pictures and article, "Goat-tying Utah rodeo queen" was disturbing. The picture of the rodeo queen, Savanna Steed, violently flipping a goat onto its back while immobilized by a rope around its neck, made me wonder how people could be so cruel to animals. I think that it would be a better idea if people would volunteer to allow Savanna to practice on them instead. This goat doesn't have a choice. Savanna said, ". . . It's a fun environment. . ." Well, it definitely didn't look like a fun environment for the goat. Go vegan!
