RODEOS: Stran Smith of Childress, Texas, tosses a lasso while competing in the tie-down roping competition at the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo in Wyoming on July 27. Rodeo is the official state sport of Wyoming and Texas and has drawn criticism from animal welfare groups who argue that the competitions are cruel to animals.
