Brazilian Rodeo in Brockton

This article is more than 12 years old.

Now for a story that's...full of bull: a rodeo in Brockton. That's right: the Wild West came to the Northeast over the weekend as the World Cup Bull Riders kicked off their 2007 season.

The South Shore may seem an unlikely location for a rodeo but it's become quite a fixture on the bull riding circuit. And, as WBUR's Lara Farrar reports, while the competitors come from around the world, it's the Brazilian riders...and fans...who dominate the event.

This program aired on May 3, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
