"JORDAN VALLEY, Ore. (AP) An animal-rights activist
from Washington state has been arrested after refusing
to quit videotaping at an Eastern Oregon rodeo with an
event where contestants rope horses by the legs.
"The Malheur County sheriff's office says 30-year-old Adam
Fahnestock of Vancouver was accused Saturday of disorderly
conduct and resisting arrest. The group Showing Animals
Kindness and Respect says he is a volunteer.
"Undersheriff Travis Johnson told the Ontario Argus Observer
the Jordan Valley Big Loop Rodeo was on private property,
so it could refuse to allow videotaping.
"The rodeo in far southeast Oregon is the only one in the
state known to hold an event that sponsors call horse
roping and opponents call horse tripping.
"The Oregon Senate has voted to ban the event.
The House is considering the bill."
