Prior to the fight, bulls are intentionally debilitated in various ways: They're often deprived of food and a few inches of their horns are sometimes sawed off to expose the nerve and impair their coordination in an illegal practice called "shaving."

This type of animal abuse, tells us plenty, about the people who enjoy the experience.
Killing an animal for food is one thing, but watching an animal bleed to death, through torture is another. Such barbaric behavior should not only be banned, it should require jail time, for the participants.

Worst of all, they are programming their children, that brutality is acceptable.
At the risk of repeating: People abusers started their life of crime, abusing animals.

Signed! Bullfighting is for cowards! The bull is lanced and run ragged by the picadors on horseback before the matador even gets there. The the bull is made to run around more, all the while slowly bleeding to death. If the bull does happen to gore the matador- another one is brought in to kill the bull- how unfair is that? Even if when the bull 'wins" (by besting the matador) he is killed anyway. This is no sport, or cultural tradition- it is just a way for men to pretend they are superior to an animal (but only if the animal is weakened and injured first!)

Signed. Cultural tradition my ass. ( my ancestors were from Spain). Why not bring back the Inquisition, the traditions of burning heretics at the stake? Hunting down the Jews and Muslims in good ol' Spain too? The oppression of natives in Mexico. There's lots to be proud of, and there is alot to be totally ashamed of!!!!
I am glad it WAS a custom and NOT genetic!!! Time to stop the torture of animals in honor of Spain's FORMER colonialist past.

Sent letter! Any one who could call such horrific violent cruelty of animal "culture" is very distorted and sick! Bullfighting can never be called culture. It is extreme exploitation of an animal who is forced to fight to make some deluded men think they are really doing something great (by acting like cruel monsters!) when, in fact, they are doing something immoral, horrendous, and beneath the dignity of any real human being! It is shocking how deluded and cruel some people can be!

Certains disent qu'il s'agit là de culture et d'art. Pour ma part, je crois que cette activité ancestrale appartient à la barbarie et à la culture de la torture. C'est le festival de la mort que l'on s'entête à perpétuer pour donner des sensations fortes à un public inconscient. Les autorités des pays concernés doivent mettre un terme à ces massacres. L'on dit que les gens qui protègent les animaux sont des des gens excessifs, je crois plutôt que ce sont les organisateurs de ces activités qui le sont. À bas ces activités sanguinaires.

Noted and signed !!!! Bullfighting needs to be BANNED everywhere .... I'm ashamed to say there is even some here, in France, but we are fighting hard to get it stopped !!! NOTHING involving animals shoud be classed as "sport" ...... and classing it as "culturel heritage" is beyond comprehension !!!!!!

When I visited Sapin in the 60's, I refused to go off with the rest of the tourists to watch a bullfight. Even then, I thought it was dreadfully cruel, though I was the only one who thought so. Seemed if you were in Spain, it was the thing to do.
