Electric shock devices used at the Chilliwack Fair rodeo

Photos obtained by VHS show electric prods at bull-riding event

Animals at the Chilliwack Fair rodeo may have been given electric shocks to force them to perform.  Photos taken at the Fair last weekend show an electric prod, which appears to be a device known as a “Hot-Shot”, was in use at the bull-riding event.  The Hot-Shot generates 4500 volts. VHS will be making a formal complaint to the Chilliwack Fair’s management, asking why this device was in use at the rodeo.

The photos below show the prod being held by a man at the bull-riding chute. (TAKE ACTION: Support our campaign)
