Signed while deeply sickened.

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace." ―Albert Schweitzer

...this certainly shoots down the statement that we now live in a civilized world...we are obviously living in a very savage one. Words fail me at this time to express fully how just the thought of this action much less the thought of it happening for real makes me feel. Traditional "Bull fights' were horrifiying/cruel but this......the degree of cruelty is beyond that of barbaric/savagery .

Setting fire to bulls or any animal is just plain cruel, the people who do this should have fire set to them. Hope they get paid back someday in someway. Eye for an Eye.

Signed. Consider that animals were created and populated the planet before humans. Perhaps the Supreme Being intended us to care for and learn from animals, not brutalize, torture, or harm them for human's self-absorbed existence. We gain far more that is priceless and transformational by caring for, learning from and living in harmony with animals than by what is achieved from harming them. Animals teach us to be better humans and help heal us when we're broken.

Very unfortunately there are HUNDREDS of similar"fiestas" in Spain where the central theme is the sadistic torture of an innocent mammal, 60.000 animals a year are tortured to death in Spain, not counting the hundreds of horses that die during bullfights. And guess what? YOU are paying for it through subsidies from the EU!

signed. I guess the bulls are a substitute to the good old days in Spain when they burned human beings at the stake. I am regretfully part Spanish (from way back-grandparent). My cousin and aunt used to love visiting sthe homeland and seeing bullfights. Makes me wish that I was adopted. And in the West people say Muslims are cruel...well guess what religion is largest in Spain? Catholic!
