The pain and suffering inflicted on the horses is immense. The fact that this is a "public event" witnessed by all, including children is very harmful to all. THIS EVENT TEACHES THAT VIOLENCE AND CRUELTY IS FUN.
They call it a feast. In the state of Yucatan, Mexico there is a "rodeo" type event called "Torneo de Lazo" where bulls ram horses and eviscerate them. THIS CAUSES A VERY HIGH LEVEL OF PAIN TO THE HORSES. These horses usually collapse and while still alive continue to get trampled by bulls and other horses during the length of this violent and cruel event where horsemen try to lasso the running, charging bulls (the bulls are specifically bred and trained to ram horses).
Although it is against the law, this is only in name. Mexico's federal government as well as the local authorities do nothing to stop this. This event takes place state wide all year round.
I urge you , Mr. President, to stop this horror that tarnishes the image of your country.

HOW SHAMEFUL-HOW DISCUSTING. WHAT A POOR EXCUSE FOR THE HUMAN RACE. ALL BEINGS SHOULD BE TREATED WITH RESPECT. HOW CAN YOU HAVE FUN WATCHING ANOTHER LIFE SUFFER? END THIS NOW-FOR THE BULLS AND THE HORSES.

The cruelty that some humans can inflict on another living thing is truly horrible. Some people see these majestic, noble animals as just another piece of meat. This should be stopped, no doubt & these people who are responsible for this inhumane act should be put in jail for many years for being so cruel & showing no respect for another living thing.
