Sheryl Crow Called a Hypocrite

 

Sheryl Crow is being criticized by a national animal rights group for performing at a Wyoming rodeo.

The “Strong Enough” singer who was hailed as the champion of wild horses roaming the Western ranges, planned to donate a significant amount of her concert earnings to a wild-horse protection group.

Crow was to donate a portion of her July 22 concert proceedings to Cheyenne Frontier Days who is suing the government to try to stop a big mustang roundup in Nevada.

However, Showing Animals Respect and Kindness claimed that wild horses are abused at the said event in a special race.

Stuart Chaifetz, a spokesman for the Illinois-based group says “How can an organization dedicated to helping wild horses take blood money that was based, in part, on abusing wild horses? We believe what Ms. Crow is doing is nothing but PR spin.”

SHARK, as the group is known, called the Cloud Foundation to reject the donation.

Cloud executive director Ginger Kathrens said that she among many other activists consider Crow a true champion of wild horses.

Kathrens told AP, “I think it’s important for people to know the wild horse act prohibits the activity they’re concerned about. They are not using wild horses off our ranges in that race.”

Crow issued a statement in her website last week saying that she was donating “in recognition of these differences [of people’s opinion of rodeos] and out of my love for wild horses.”
