Don’t Kill Bull’s Mother For Archaic Bullfighting Tradition

Bullfight-by-MarcusObal

Target: José Ignacio Wert Ortega, Spanish Minister of Culture and Sport

Goal: Don’t allow mother of bull who gored matador to be slaughtered as part of a cruel bullfighting tradition.

The mother of a bull who fatally injured a matador during a bullfight is set to be slaughtered. The bull itself has already been murdered in an irrational bid to avenge the fallen matador. Murdering the bull is barbaric and entirely unjust as the animal did not seek out the bullfighter to kill him. Instead, the bull was trapped in an arena surrounded by noisy spectators and was taunted and tortured by matadors who waved flags in its face and cruelly planted spears in its back and neck. The frightened animal was killed simply for defending itself against this abuse.

Now, the bull’s mother, a cow named Lorenza, will be put to death as part of the bullfighting custom of “killing off the bloodline” when a bull has injured a matador. This is not only incredibly cruel, it is also absurd, considering the animals are the victims in this barbaric practice. Unfortunately, thousands of bulls are killed in bullfights each year, whether or not they harm their abusers, after having been taunted and stabbed to entertain crowds.

Sign this petition demanding that this needless slaughter be stopped so that this innocent animal is spared and urge Spain to ban the cruel and archaic practice of bullfighting for good.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Wert Ortega,

Please use your influence to stop the needless and cruel killing of Lorenza, the mother of the bull who fatally injured Victor Barrio in a bullfight in Madrid. While Barrio’s death is tragic, the bull did not choose to be in the ring. He has reportedly already been slaughtered simply for defending himself against the matadors’ abuse. Lorenza must not suffer a similarly unjust fate simply for the sake of bullfighting custom.

Moreover, countless bulls die in bullfighting shows after being taunted and tortured. This cruel, archaic and clearly dangerous tradition must be banned immediately. Please ensure Lorenza is not killed and take urgent steps to stop the barbaric practice of bullfighting in Spain.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    A vingança do Touro Lorenzo é uma manifestação do poder de Deus.

    In addition to my comment in July, 13th,about the barbarism of the Spanish people against animals, specially bulls and greyhounds,here it goes the last one: http://www.actuanimaux.com/a-parrainer/animaux/verano-bebe-galgo-jete-dans-une-poubelle-une-patte-cassee. How come?

  3. We never holiday in Spain now? Why? Cruelty to animals.

  4. End the archaic and abusive bullfighting rings!!! These events have no place in a civilized society. If people are so bored that they have nothing else to do, they should just fight each other and leave the innocent animals alone! Animals did not agree to be exploited and victimized in this manner. They have a right to live their own lives with their families without being abused by ignorant, selfish people!

  6. Wendy Waltenberg says:

    No sympathy for the matador or his family.
    All I say is one less idiot that goes out torturing and killing bulls.
    Maybe his family should be killed in retribution for bringing into this world such a sadistic killing.

    Go the bulls !!!!!

  7. WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS INSTANCE? DID THESE BARBARIANS KILL THIS MOTHER BULL OR DID THEY SHOW SOME DEGREE OF DECENCY??? WE DESERVE TO KNOW.

    THEY NEED TO END THIS UNCIVILIZED BULL FIGHTING WHICH THE ENTIRE WORLD HATES AND HAS CONTEMPT FOR.
