No more blood on the bull arenas!

 

 

Every year, thousands of bulls endure a bloody death in bullrings across Spain. These deaths are slow and painful: men on horseback and on foot drive lances and barbed sticks into bulls’ backs before the tormented animals are stabbed with a sword or dagger.

At the annual Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, terrified bulls are shocked with electric prods to force them out onto the streets, where they’re harassed by screaming mobs.

The panicked animals often slip and crash into walls, resulting in broken bones and other injuries. Later, these same bulls will be barbarically killed in the bullring – a fact many tourists are unaware of.

Compassionate people understand that this violence is needless and unjustifiable, and opposition to bullfighting is growing both within Spain and around the world.

A poll released in 2016 revealed that an overwhelming 81 per cent of Spaniards do not support bullfighting, and that figure rises to 93 per cent among 16- to 24-year-olds.

Most Spaniards (in average 70-75%) reject bullfighting, as well as other forms of bull-mauling such as “Toro de la Vega”. The overwhelming majority of Europeans find bullfighting an abhorrent custom.

The subsidies that come under the guise of “agrarian subsidies” to this bloody spectacle raise a fundamental ethical question: is it ethically acceptable that the Europeans, with 130 million euros, financially support a blood spectacle, which is illegal not only in their own country, but across Europe – except in the south of France, Spain (except Catalonia) and Portugal?

Is it ethically viable for the European Union to finance animal torture?

 

Only dull, mentally weak proletarians would explain the mistreatment and exploitation of innocent defenseless beings as “culture”.

I found this picture on a web page for animals with the title: “The kiss of Judas“. I translated it:

 

 

 

The picture shows the breeder , whom the bull once belonged to.
He bred the bull for bullfighting. The owner sold the bull and the animal landed in the arena.
In the middle of the bullfight the bull was already injured and could not fight back.
And then the bull noticed that his former master was there and desperately ran to him hoping that he would help.
But of course! After the kiss the man did nothing and so the bull was killed and then slaughtered.
The Spanish newspapers have called the picture “the kiss of Judas”.
No animal is so mendacious and cruel as the human animal!

 

My best regards
