Care2 member Michelle Sibinovic has dedicated herself to project animals and she is one of most effective animal activist on Care2. She goes beyond words and I believe she has the power to put closure on the California Academy of Tauromaquia.

Here is the previous article that Dave Rice wrote about Michelle's petition for The San Diego Reader
Let's support this amazing women in her effort to shut down the California Academy of Tauromaquia!
Say NO to Teaching Torture - Shut Down the Bullfighting School in San Diego!

Noted and shared. Re-shared the petition along with Michelle's extremely sad, but enlightening description of what the bull goes through to be made ready for this horror. I had no idea of the true horrors of it. ~sigh

Signed and sent a Green Star to Desanka. I just can't understand why they don't fight the bulls then let them go back to pasture alive.

Bull Fighter s are COWARDS! First you put Vaseline in the bulls eyes so he can not see to well, than you stick the poor animals with these long darts that have tranquilizers on them and now you the big brace bull fighting take on the poor defenseless half blind animal. How can any one watch such a cruel act , and partake in it. They must be saddist.

We always knew bull fighting was horrible, but this is beyond words. We must help her get this torture-chamber of a school shut down immediately.
