Focus:Animal Welfare
Action Request:Protest
Location:Ecuador
Once a year, a known bullfighter stages an event in Guayaquiol, Ecuador, the city where I live. The mayor is in favor of bullfights, so he authorizes the use of the roofed sports coliseum, because there is no arena in town. Bullfighting has never been traditional in this city. However, in the capital, which is located 280 miles from here, a long tradition exists. The next bullfight is to take place here in less than one month.  Many fellow citizens are against it, but the event will take place in spite of foreseen protests and scuffles.

Its shameful that in 21st century such blood sport entertaiment exist.The Mayor has no shame at all.Pls stop torturing and killing of innocent Bull.We are not in primitive age.There are other means of entertainment in which you can raise funds better than this blood sport.
