They show bullfighting on Spanish TV all the time , if its not on one spanish channel its on another one.
There are many Spanish TV channels . On Canal Sur its almost a weekly event.
What a disgrace in this day and age.

I kind of consider this petition to be a joke. The entire Latin culture is predicated upon violence and oppression of the weak. The violence of these so-called "fights" (what "fight?"
the disadvantaged and depleted animal ALWAYS gets murdered no matter what) is no secret in Latin countries. Children enter bull fighting academies as young as five years old and practice murdering baby calves to hone their craft. It's so low and barbaric as to render one speechless....and there's no apparent end in sight.

So sick to pretend the prolonged torture of an animal is a sacred cultural tradition. And, I know, the U.S. is no better, with so many creeps who want to promote cock fighting and dog fights...

Noted and signed - to hell with culture and tradition - this is an innocent animal being tortured so that monsters can be entertained. Disgusting, I don't respect people's cultures and traditions when it comes to barbarically torturing and killing defenceless creatures.

Having been banned for over 6 years and opposed by 60% of the populus,
broadcasting the torture and murder of these animals is a deplorable
atrocity for ratings and advertisment value. A bloodthirsty savagery
that is globally unacceptable.
I have signed this petition
Thank you Cher.

Bullfighting is ancient. Time to come up with new traditions that take in to account the knowledge that animals DO suffer and to take in to account that humans need not be so selfish and sick!
