Intro to Bullfighting


Bullfighting is still legally practiced in Spain, Portugal, Mexico, and parts of France. In bullfighting, a bull is forced into a public arena and taunted by a matador with a cape. Then men on horses throw lances into the bull’s back and neck muscles, so the bull cannot lift his head. They twist and gouge the lances to make sure there is a significant amount of blood loss to weaken the bull. Then it is distracted and stabbed with brightly colored darts. The men run the bull in more circles until he becomes dizzy and stops chasing. Finally the matador appears and uses his cape and sword to provoke a few exhausted charges from the dying animal, and then tries to deliver the deathblow with his sword. In bullfights the bull always dies at the end. It is either killed by the matador or slaughtered if it survives.

All of these cruel practices, and for what? Humans actually get entertainment from an animal suffering. Surely there can be a better way to entertain people that doesn’t involve torturing and killing innocent animals.

    Absolutely barbaric. This is torture and murder, it is sick and immoral.

    May be our barbaric nature has not been much limited to animals these days from the earlier blood-soaked histories. We can hope positively to eradicate our violent nature one day and be true human.
