Animal rights advocates protested the staging of the Fiesta Rodeo here Sunday, claiming that the two days of bronco riding, steer wrestling and calf roping is harmful to the animals involved. Local residents are "outraged at the idea of an abusive rodeo in our neighborhood," said Gerard Livernois, a member of Orange County People for Animals and a resident of the unincorporated area.

Whoops of "Whoa, Nellie!" and "Get 'em on up!" rang out Friday as 60 wrangler wanna-bes herded 100 head of cattle four miles through canyon terrain from San Juan Capistrano to the rodeo grounds here. From Oso Parkway through the Chiquita Canyon, across Antonio Parkway then alongside the distant Foothill Transportation Corridor, doctors, real estate agents and homemakers alike--assisted by a few cow dogs--successfully brought the herd home, zigzagging through wilderness and brush.

It was a grand celebration fit for a returning hero or the opening of a major league ballpark. There were huge strands of balloons swaying in the wind, a parade and a blessing from a Catholic priest--all for the opening of a small stretch of roadway. But after years of red-tape delays and construction setbacks, Oso Parkway couldn't be considered the average road project.

It was a cattle drive straight out of a Western. The only thing missing was the movie camera. In a real-life version of the film "City Slickers," the greenhorns nearly outnumbered the steers on Thursday as cattle were herded to the site of this weekend's Rancho Santa Margarita Fiesta Rodeo. There were 20 would-be cowpokes--local Rotarians, computer engineers and general contractors--to watch 60 head of cattle. And five real ranch hands to shepherd the would-be cowpokes. It wasn't enough.

Not everyone would consider it great luck to break both legs in a tractor accident. But Cotton Rosser figures it was the best thing that ever happened to him. The former rodeo rider, who will furnish truckloads of livestock for a South County rodeo this weekend, credits an accident that almost cost him use of his legs for boosting him into a career devoted to "keeping Western heritage alive."
