worker from Washington state arrested for taping rodeo
VALLEY, Ore. (AP) -- An animal-rights activist from Washington state has
been arrested after refusing to quit videotaping at an Eastern Oregon rodeo
with an event where contestants rope horses by the legs.
County sheriff's office says 30-year-old Adam Fahnestock of Vancouver was
accused Saturday of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. The group
Showing Animals Kindness and Respect says he is a volunteer.
"Undersheriff Travis Johnson told the Ontario Argus Observer the Jordan
Valley Big Loop Rodeo was on private property, so it could refuse to allow
"The rodeo in far southeast Oregon is the only one in
the state known to hold an event that sponsors call horse roping and
opponents call horse tripping.
"The Oregon Senate has voted to ban
the event. The House is considering the bill."

NOTMILKMAN'S NOTE: The Oregon Senate had previously banned taping by
animal rights advocates. The Oregon Senate has been alerted to horse tipping
by an activist who courageously broke their law and will act to ban this
horrific practice despite their prior effort to stifle the peaceful
democratic protest of filming animal abusers.
