Barcelona, Barcelona’s bullring, La Monumental, opened its season with an extremely low attendance. Over 80% of its seats were glaringly empty*.
The failure to fill the bullring is indicative of Catalonia’s rejection of these violent spectacles and of a general disinterest for this moribund tradition. Despite the financial losses, the bullfighting industry insists in maintaining the bullring open as part of a strategic effort to promote bullfighting.

Unfortunately, tourists accounted for most of the few seats that were occupied in Barcelona’s bullring. Meanwhile, PROU’s Popular Legislative Initiative continues to gather signatures and has already managed to greatly surpass the number of signatures required to ensure that the proposed law to ban bullfighting can be submitted to the Parliament.

I don't understand how the Spanish have got away with this so-called sport...it's ridiculous imo.

Not only that, the farms that raise the bulls claim handouts from the EU, so indirectly every EU Citizen that pays taxes, also helps to support this sickening sport!

Many citizens in Spain are now against handing out their taxes to promote bullfighting likewise Mexico

In Mexico an overwhelming majority of 88 percent do not think it is right for the government to use taxpayer’s money to support the bullfighting industry, a poll commissioned by organisations led by the Humane Society International found.

The bulls killed in the ring are not fit for human consumption with not being killed under hygenic surroundings :roll: and are used as dog food etc. Having said that many butchers sell the meat on the so called blackmarket.

What is the betting that if bullfighting in Spain/France/Portugal is banned the bullfighting industry moves to a none European Union influenced country.

The same way the Landed Gentry moving over to Ireland to carry on Fox hunting.

Time for a Guinness!!!
 
The Landed Gentry now do drag hunts---- laying a scent for the dogs to follow.

As for foxes and hunting them with hounds --its not that cruel and the fox usually gets away anyway !They have now decided to shoot the fox before
the hounds actually get the fox if its in any danger of being caught---or if
its definately getting away !!

Apart from that --Fox fatalities by horse and hound is about 5% of all foxes killed. They are gasssed ,trapped ,shot or poisoned .

And ------------as a Farm owner myself I suggest the City dwellers get out and about more often -- foxes do more damage to livestock and poultry and wildlife than is ever published in the cuddly fluffy media readers
articles.
 
The Catalans are always whingeing, the rest of the country is used to it! Yet, until recently it was they that were hurling donkeys off church towers (instead of a submariner dressed as one!).
It is estimated 11,000,000 Spaniards took to the streets in largely peaceful protest at the Madrid bombings; a similar number in protest at the invasion of Iraq.
It would take four times that amount to even attempt to change something so close to the Spanish soul.
Outside attempts at influence would be ignored.

Amazing isn't it ? That with all the activities in the world to pursue, distressing animals is the best people can think up for entertainment.

As for why the Spanish get away with it ? Probably the same way the English have gotten away with running foxes to the point of exhaustion, often with their leg ligaments cut to ensure a successful outcome for the 'hunt'. Political sexiness and Who's-Whoever backing the Bill.

'Sport is an activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively. Sports commonly refer to activities where the physical capabilities of the competitor are the sole or primary determinant of the outcome ....Sport is commonly defined as an organized, competitive and skillful physical activity requiring commitment and fair play'.

Fair play to any animal that get the upper hand when needlessly tormented in the name of human cruelty and stupidity.Members of the human race who perpetuate such misery don't deserve to live and are an utter waste of valuable space. :evil:

Edited for type-o's

Bo0llocks I hunt with horses and never witnessed ligament cutting whats your source for this pice of shit?
