The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled:

We, the undersigned citizens of the Australian Capital Territory, humbly pray that no further approvals be given for the staging of rodeos in the ACT. We have a strong objection to rodeo events which bear no relevance to stock handling and control as practised in Australia either historically or currently and we view with special abhorrence the events comprising calf roping and goat tying which are barbaric and blatant forms of animal cruelty.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
