Bullfights are immensely cruel events in which thousands of animals are slowly and painfully killed across Spain every year. Attackers on horseback and on foot drive lances and sharp sticks into bulls' necks and backs, and when the animals have become weakened by blood loss, a matador finally kills them with a sword. Bulls also suffer in bull runs, in which they're forced to run through the streets while being harassed by a terrifying mob. The panicked animals often lose their footing and crash into walls, breaking bones and otherwise injuring themselves.
To date, over 100 towns have banned bullfighting, and according to an Ipsos MORI poll, over 80 per cent of Spanish people oppose the cruel event.
Please listen to the voices of people in Spain and across the world and ban bullfighting and bull runs now.
