A popular new jersey rodeo is facing charges of animal cruelty after a video surfaces showing a horse collapsing and dying in front of a packed crowd. A member of the animal rights group "SHARK" (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness) uploaded the video to Youtube. The group says a cattle prod can be seen as the horse comes out of the gate. A vet examined the horse and says it died of an aneurism. SHARK says it was brought on by the cattle prod, but the owner of the rodeo says the animal dies of natural causes.
