Spain: Adiós Toro de la Vega!

Spain’s Supreme Court has upheld a final ban on the torture of bulls during the cruel “Toro de la Vega” festival, following years of pressure from local Spanish groups, including PACMA, and PETA.

No young bull will ever again be stabbed to death by men with spears in the Castilla y León region of Spain.

The Toro de la Vega fiesta takes place in Tordesillas, in the Castilla y León region of Spain, each September, despite the fact almost three quarters (74 per cent) of Spanish citizens aged 16 to 65 oppose the bull fiesta.

During the barbaric event, spear-wielding men on horseback chase a bull out of the town and into the surrounding countryside. He is relentlessly pursued and stabbed with spears until he is cornered before being brutally stabbed to death.

 

We salute our Spanish colleagues who have fought against the backward attempts of Tordesillas Council to reverse an earlier decision to prohibit the public killing of the bull during the annual Toro de la Vega fiesta.”

 

This victory is part of a wider movement in Spain, as more and more people are speaking out against events in which bulls are tortured in the name of entertainment. To date, over 100 towns have banned bullfighting.

 

Even these bloody bullfests are subsidized by the EU, alone 150 million euros flow directly and indirectly from Germany into the bullfighting industry, 600 million euros is the bloodthirsty Tauromafia, which plunges the European Union every year in the cash. This EU subsidy insanity feeds and preserves the bull mafia.

US: the cat-horror Lab of Maryland

 

A recent report from a US NGO (Non Government Organisation) suggests  that in a US state laboratory, cats are infected with the infectious disease toxoplasmosis for research purposes. For years they were given the meat of dogs and other cats.

In addition, laboratory mice have been injected with the tissue of sick cats.

Certain tests were quite bizarre and included feeding the cats the body parts of other animals – dogs and other cats – infected with toxoplasmosis, injecting mice with fluids harvested from dead animals, and so on. T

he body parts, those were for the food of the kittens, had been procured by the USDA at animal meat markets in China and Vietnam (!!!) according to the report.

 

 

 

The shocking information on conditions at the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, a US Department of Agriculture research center in the state of Maryland, has now been disclosed in a report by the White Coat Waste Project, which combats government-sponsored animal testing.

The report highlights the activities of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), specifically its research into toxoplasmosis, which has been going on since 1982 at the Animal Parasitic Disease Lab in Beltsville, Maryland. Toxoplasmosis is a parasite disease, believed to be affecting nearly half of humankind and many domestic animals.

It poses only health risks to those, whose immune system is weakened, and it usually evokes no noticeable symptoms.

“Truth is that virtually any experiment on animals in the United States is legal as long as the right paperwork is filled out.”

And I mean: Again someone was bribed from the pharmaceutical Mafia to conduct such experiments! And with the money of the US citizens! What was done there is against any normal ethics, absolutely unnecessary and disgusting.

Animal cruelty and corruption, nothing more.

I would give the people a lifelong professional ban.
