Translation....

Each September, in the Spanish town of Tordesillas, a Bull is pursued to the countryside, tormented with Spears and shot to death during the feast of the Toro de la Vega. Incredibly, this cruel and unjustified show receives the distinction of tourist status in Spain.

Spanish activists who are opposed to this party have urged the Council of culture and local tourism to revoke the status of tourist interest.

This year, a bull named Vulcan died in the name of entertainment and tourism.

Events in which animals are tortured or slaughtered should not be considered tourist attractions. Make clear to politicians that these terrible rather than attract us, shows us repugnant.


Join thousands of activists who are committed to speak out against the cruelty to animals. Click on "send" when you're done.

Cruelty is not a tourist attraction

"Never attend an event in which a Bull is tortured or wounded in order to entertain the people."

"The cruel fiestas bullfighting and bullfights of bulls have no attractions for me and events that include animal suffering should never receive the distinction of a tourist status."

"I call to Spanish politicians to allow already not that these terrible events are carried out."

spain has very strange ideas about "sport" and attractions , esp where bulls are concerned. Not sure why they are obsessed with torturing them?

Noted, petition signed and spammer flagged. The machismo culture calls for men to attack something, and I guess they feel it's better to attack bulls than each other. It would be nice if manhood could be confirmed without killing or maiming anything!

Bullfighting is a cruel and inhumane punishment to a poor animal whose only problem is to be in the wrong place at the wrong/right time. These animals need to be left alone. The blood letting and other inhumane things done to them in the name of entertainment is disgusting.
