A prize giveaway from "The Price is Right" for a trip to two to mark the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede has former host Bob Barker stomping mad.

"We're proud of our animal care and the way we treat animals," said Doug Fraser. "We're very proud of the way we've advanced our animal care program over the past few years so we'll just leave it at that."
It makes me very happy that Bob Barker is speaking out against the Stampede. And for the owner(or whoever he is) to say that they have advanced animal care is disgusting. Every year the stampede gets worse, and there are more deaths.
I think this year I'll be with the other protesters across the highway.

It really is disgusting this is still going on every year, I'm glad Bob Barker is speaking out against it so publicly. I cannot even fathom how they consider it entertainment.

I think he mentioned that when he was doing the show that he got a fair say in what prizes were given out, and that there have never been fur jackets or cars with leather seats given away. He definitely would have stopped this one, but he doesn't blame Drew for it happening. It would be so exciting if he came out this year...I would finally meet a celebrity!
