Now Here's an Odd Job: Mexican Rodeo Clown in Queens


Miguel Angel Lorea Hoyos, also known as "Cowboy's Pet," is a rodeo clown in a bull ring in Howard Beach, New York City. His job is to distract the bulls so that the cowboys can be safer as they do what they have to do.

Hoyos' way of making his living is one of the very few not in danger of being outsourced to a nation with lower wages. In fact, the job of rodeo clown has been imported from Mexico.
