PETA strikes again

A letter to Governor Henry from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (remember them?) has asked that the annual "Outlaw" Rodeo at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary at McAlester be canceled, claiming it encourages criminals to torment and abuse animals.

The governor's spokesperson called the request "silly," and said that the rodeo would go on as scheduled next Friday and Saturday.
