Warwick Rodeo bull incident still being investigated

WITH a month having passed since the incident involving an injured bull at the Warwick Rodeo the event is still being looked into.

RSPCA Queensland chief inspector of operations Daniel Young said the matter involving the injured bull, which had to be euthanised, was close to being resolved and meetings with the rodeo fraternity were progressing well.

"The RSPCA met with members of the National Rodeo Association as well as the Australian Professional Rodeo Association and the Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry along with other members within the rodeo industry to discuss ways to improve animal welfare," he said.

"Discussions were particularly in the area of animals sustaining injuries during rodeo events.

"The industry has agreed to look at a number of measures and discussion will continue on an ongoing basis."

The Daily News will report the findings when they are released.
