Does defending cultural traditions still justify animal cruelty?

I can't see how people on the one hand revere their bulls and on the other hand torture them to run in a frenzy into a crowd. It seems that at least for a short while worship goes out the window to make place for the frenzy of the participants, a good reason to order a stay to keep the ban on these bull runs in place.

It is not only brutal and cruel but a stupid way of thinking. Call me culturally insensitive but animals do quite fine without the intrusion of people. Animals should never have to suffer for the ridiculous notions of humans, for entertainment or any other "reasons" they come up with.

No festival or tradition can ever justify animal cruelty. And India is really no longer a cow loving nation either+hasn't ben 4 many many years. Cows are slaughtered there by the millions of year+most of the worlds leather comes from there too.

Makes no sense. The ban must stay in place. You can see the soul of a human or a country by the way they treat an animal.

Cruelty to an animal is never justified for any reason.

I don't like bullfighting in any country, but in a country where the cow is sacred, that is the pits.
