How horrible! With all of the possible ways to entertain tourists, why do you have to choose a barbaric, primitive "sport" like bullfighting? I signed the protest, hope others do as well.

The scene is hotting up here - Madrid - and now Valencia - wish to declare bullfighting part of the "Cultural Heritage", which would make it very much more difficult to halt and clear the way for public subsidies - I'll keep developments posted....

We should all write a letter that they can keep their cultural heritage but without including animal cruelty that is against European law!

If they wish they can do the 'bullfights' like in some parts of France and California where horse and Bulls share pastures together and the 'bullfighters' simply steal ribbons of the bulls horns after which bull and horse go back to their pastures.

We have been thru this before 10 years ago.... :roll:
Cultural heritage; yes, animal cruelty; no!

who can we write to this time, Rita?

Not sure yet, Josepha - but anyone who has access to tourist centres/travel agencies might be able to point out that they won't come to a country where these barbarities are practised.........

In some cultures it's acceptable to kill others that offend one in certain ways. That doesn't make me want to either permit or encourage.

Torture is acceptable in some cultures.

Calling brutality and torture of animals a "Cultural Heritage," is denial.

I ask those that make such a claim if they are animal torturers. If they say "no," then I ask if they know how to kill a bull over a half hour or so of play with him, carrying around hooked darts in his shoulders with out him feeling pain. If that doesn't do it, I ask them why they don't simply bring the bull in and kill it humanely with a bullet to the brain. If all they want is a ritual death they could certainly arrange for some kind of pagentry leading up to the gun shot.

Maybe even fete the bull in some way. Some nice grain to eat, an in-season cow to service ... why not make it even bigger than it already is with all the torture. Celebrate the joy of life before death.

I have to imagine a people doing bullfights as they do that are not joyful themselves and thus worship death as an escape from life rather than just the end of the joyride.

Sad, isn't it?

Donald

Sad would be the word here, indeed Uncle Donald.

Here is a link to a website which votes for bullfight NOT to be marked as a cultural heritage.
Just fill out your name and press 'firmar'.

More news soon!
