A Victory for the Bulls


Lawmakers in the region of Catalonia thrust a sword deep into Spain's centuries-old tradition of bullfighting, banning the blood-soaked pageant.
I remember years ago ( when i was young) we went to Barcelona with a group.
Automatically we all went to the bull fight.....horrible.
I sat there. Watching such cruel things.
And that in the name of culture...Gosh
The suffering of animals in the Catalan bullrings has been abolished once and for all. It has created a precedent lets hope it will be replicated by other democratic parliaments internationally, in those regions and countries where such cruel bullfights are still allowed.
Thumbs up for the animalrights groups of Spain.

Yet another landmark in the fight against animal cruelty. It's about time this despicable and barbaric practise was brought to an end everywhere. How any human can torture another living being in this manner is just shameful!!! So happy to hear this latest news. Slowly but surely progress is made and continues to. I am not a HUGE supporter of PETA, but I can and do appreciate their stance on many issues.
