Yard Goats Stadium Cancels Cowboy-Rodeo Monkey Show
If you live near Hartford, Connecticut and you were really wanting to see some cowboy monkeys ride dogs, we have some bad news for you.
Yard Goats Stadium has cancelled the Cowboy-Rodeo Monkey Show event after negative reactions on social media.
Of course at first the show sounds innocent and cute enough, it's just a monkey riding a dog like a cowboy while the dog chases rams, but animal lovers everywhere think it's problematic.
After all the backlash and concerned citizens reaching out, Yard Goats put out an email about the cancellation and said, “They will no longer be coming to the ballpark, and never will."
