Why can't these idiots go play video games or something? Their traditions always involve abusing animals. Moron freaks.

Stupid bunch of drunken morons.How can one of Europe's oldest nations behave in such a depraved manner.You would think that after all this time they would at least show the semblance of civilised behavior. This is a nation that routinely tortures and kill's animals under the disguise of tradition in the most horrible and brutal way.
Do they never stop and wonder what this say's about them and their nation?

I don't understand how hell is possible that in a country of the EU these things happen yet. The Spain unfortunately, is not the only one to have this kind of barbaric problem. Even here in Italy we have some cruel and medieval kind of 'festivals' that traditionally used animals mistreated and tortured them. I feel shame and horror for this, cruelty to an animal cannot be called tradition, is just repressed violence towards defenseless creatures!!!!!! And also shame on the EU that allows these things continue to happen :(
