China - Says no to rodeo

[China Daily]

A 'Western cowboy lifestyle show' to have been staged at the Bird's Nest in October has been postponed due to pressure from animal rights groups. Wang Ru reports.

Rodeo China, the first United States "Wild West" event in China, has been postponed until next year, after a coalition of 71 animal welfare organizations, including six international NGOs, worked for four months to prevent it taking place.

The campaign included two media conferences, a signature drive and an open letter to Gary Locke, the new US ambassador to China.
