Move To Ban Bullfighting In Spain

There is a growing anti-bullfighting movement in Spain? I guess so...

A History of Bullfighting

Spanish rights group calls for bullfighting ban debate.

Here is a petition to ban bullfighting, though I should make it clear that I'm not in favor of any new laws on this or anything else.

From the petition site:

Every year 250,000 bulls die slow and torturous deaths as a result of the bullfighting industry. While many of us imagine the matador piercing the heart of the bull with one quick movement, in reality the bull is repeatedly stabbed, skewered and slowly weakened as it bleeds to death.

The gruesome killing of hundreds of thousands of bulls is done in the name of entertainment and has no place in our modern society. It is time to update this outmoded tradition and start treating animals more humanely.

Reality of Bullfighting: Cruel and Barbaric.
