I wish people would just think about the harm they are causing - would they treat their companion animals the same as they treat these bulls?? I will never understand the appeal. Signed!

Wow. That first petition is powerful. (I couldn't get the second one to translate, but with a professional attachment and so many signatures, it just has to be great! ;- )

I loved when the witness/author says:
"Clearly imagine what the cultural level of the participants 'Tournament' and how the fact of winning or participating in it helps them overcome shortcomings of self-esteem..."

"This state allegedly drugged bull, so obvious and discussed among the people."

Honestly, from Rompesuelas' before and after photos, it looked to me like he had been starved during those 3-4 weeks that he was hidden from the public.

"It has been demonstrated that local authorities and the tournament organizers violate their own rules with impunity and without penalties. So Rompesuelas exceeded the "Field of Honor" and reached the last street of the industrial estate La Vega, a place where should have been pardoned under the Rules, but, instead, killed..."

May his death not be in vain - unlike this "Null and Void" tournament.

Signed both. Thank you Angela.

his year the town of Tordesillas has again been widely criticized in the media all because of the celebration of the Toro de la Vega. A grotesque tradition, which they call "tournament", which consists of a bull loose in the open field and pursue it in crowds, on foot and on horseback, armed with spears to kill sadistically stabbing.

The modern and advanced society itself according to the Secretary General of the PSOE, Pedro Sanchez, Spain forms the today mobilized days earlier in Madrid for calling on the authorities massive suppression tournament called Toro de la Vega; a macabre spectacle that has no defense in any corner of the country except in the Valladolid municipality.

No political party should hold between its members one wild mayor insensitive towards animal abuse, able to argue that "the bull feels pain but not suffering." Therefore we demand the Secretary General of the Spanish Socialist Workers Party informative instituting proceedings against the Mayor of Tordesillas, José Antonio González Poncela, in order to immediately delete the celebration of this savage act or, in case of refusal, It is expelled as a member of the PSOE.

The Secretary-General himself, Pedro Sanchez, recently appeared in "Save Me" program Tele5 through phone call, ensuring the show's host, D. Jorge Javier Vazquez, who never would see him in a bullfight. Well, not enough not attend cruelty if it allows people on your team or under the responsibility of organizing, authorizing or endorsing.
