What in HELL is ''SPORTING" about the torture of an animal? Maybe it'd be more "SPORTING" if they stuck one another with long-handled blades?

Absolutely appalling cruelty and makes these people the lowest creatures on this Earth! It seems as if Spain just looks for ways to be taunt and be as cruel to animals as they can! What a message they are sending to the world! I really would be afraid to visit over there! That's why I boycott Spain in travel as well as products! I don't think anyone can really feel safe, with people who think of such horrific torture to inflict on any sentient being, would if a person was cornered that didn't think like them or was a little different! This mentality and the sadistic acts that they practice on animals plainly scares me and I certainly don't won't to ever witness their depraved acts of cruelty! How shameful it is, the way Spain treats its animals! They better stop, because they will get it back through karma and their Creator when they stand before Him on judgement day!

Noted and signed. I doubt very much if the European parliament will allow this disgusting form of animal torture to pass as a legal form of hunting. If the Spanish government passes it despite protests, it'll have to be taken to the European court. But by the time it's dealt with there, a lot of animals will have suffered horribly, so I hope the Spanish will listen to reason.
