Ban the Barbaric Practice of Bullfighting

Target: Pedro Sánchez, Prime Minister of Spain

Goal: Save the lives of thousands of innocent bulls from sadistic tradition.

Every year, Spain watches as thousands of bulls are violently slaughtered in a tradition called corrida de toros or la fiesta. Bullfighting already claimed the lives of hundreds of millions of bulls, and the numbers are going up at a rapid pace.

A traditional bullfight begins with the bull entering the arena. Picadors, men on horseback, move in on the animal and drive lances into his back and neck muscles. Because of this malicious attack the bull is unable to lift his head and defend himself. Through twisting and gouging the picadors ensure significant blood loss that weakens the bull. The debilitated animal is then distracted by banderilleros, men on foot, that circle around him while plunging harpoon like weapons into his back. When the bull is too weak to chase after his attackers, the matador enters the arena. The dying animal endures further torture before the matador kills him with his sword. If the sword is unsuccessful in the killing, it is replaced by a dagger. In case the matador errs this stroke, the bull will be conscious and unable to move when chained by the horns and dragged out of the arena.A happy audience will repulsively honor the matador with trophies, the bull’s ears and tail. After one bull is brutally killed and mutilated, another bull enters the arena to endure the same sadistic abuse.

Most people who witness this ghastly spectacle leave the arena in a traumatized condition, never to return.

Bullfighting should not be part of Spain’s modern society, and needs to be outlawed. Sign this petition to bring this gruesome sport to an end, and let bulls live their lives in peace.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Sánchez,

Every year, Spain celebrates the gruesome death of hundreds of millions of bulls for human entertainment. Not only are the innocent animals brutally harmed during corrida de toros, but also beforehand. Bulls are sadistically debilitated to rig the fight in a matador’s favor. This practice makes the disgusting tradition of bullfighting dishonest. Weakened bulls are forced to fight men that went through years of training, only to face a certain death.

Thousands of spectators gather every year to see la fiesta for their pleasure. But after witnessing the horror that takes place in the arena, more than ninety percent of the disturbed viewers never return.

It is shameful for a country to seek gain through a living beings torture.

You must ban bullfights in all of Spain and end the sadistic treatment of bulls. Leave these beautiful animals live their lives in peace without fear of men.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Pedro – The year is 2021 and I find it hard to understand why this sport is allowed to continue in your country. The Animal Kingdom was not put on this planet to be tortured and murdered inside a ring for human entertainment. We share this world with many different types of life and all have the right to live their lives in peace on this planet, free from torture and murder at the hands of humans. Please – if there is an ounce of compassion in your blood, put a stop to this horrific tradition…

  2. I never understood this tradition, but I hope it will soon be only a grim memory. Bulls should not be sadisticly harmed for entertainment purposes. This is extremely inhumane and cruel. Please end this now.

  3. Stop killing Bulls you psychos!You would never face them without a weapon Bulls knowing full well you wouldn’t stand a chance.this is disgusting and shameful.make it stop!!!

    Here’s a novel idea …. watch TV instead! The time for this blood sport is past due and archaic.

  6. cristina jitcov says:

    Who could watch this barbaric,disgusting,inhumane,horrible show?It is time to stop it forever!Please,enough is enough.

  7. Jaime Perez says:

    This ugly barbaric practice must be stopped now. This is not a sport, it’s cold blooded murder!!

  8. james waldo says:

    A good addition to all bullfights would be the machine gunning to death of people at the bullfights. Amen gracias

  9. Lisa Allis says:

    The Spanish are barbaric lunatics to keep this medieval activity going nowadays with covid and many other diseases that have jumped from animals to humans, mainly due to animal farming. This is a bloody, dirty, brutal horror show. What sickos want to see this anyway? It is just torturing an animal to death. So ignorant, but the Spanish digracefully put a lot of money into it!

  10. Rafael Garay says:

    I actually love it when i catch on the news of a bull goring a punk in those tights. Sadly, not even enough of a balance between bulls and matadors.

  11. Jim Takahashi says:

    Spain is an epitome of animal abusing Western culture.

  12. They call this “fighting “?? The bull doesn’t have a chance. Stop this horrendous “tradition” or make it a fair fight…no weapons for the so-called humans. Let the bull have a go at them while they are defenseless and see what happens

  13. These arseholes never evolved one iota. Or, they were never human to begin with. All these years of petitioning the Spanish government about this atrocity and they still haven’t budged an inch. I hope all the spectators, native or foreign, suffer nightmares for the rest of their sorry lives because THEY’RE more at fault than the government. Without them attending, it would die right out, as it SHOULD have already.

  14. These vile animal murdering low life scumbags must be put to death. We need to unite together globally to perform this procedure!

  15. This CRUEL SADISATIC BLOODSPORT SHOULD BE BANNED IMMEDIATELY!!!!!! OMG!!! STOP THIS CRUELTY NOW!!!!~!

  16. These so called `men` are just cowards, nothing better than that. Its easy to hurt something that cant get away, that is penned in and unable to fend for itself. These people are cruel, wicked and disgust me, as do the idiots and morons that think its so good and brave and go and watch it. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU, YOU ARE WICKED BEYOND BELIEF….REMEMBER YOUR KARMA WILL FIND YOU…FOR SURE. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU.

  17. I don’t c the reason of the killing of the bull. That is so inhumane and cruel. Yes,they need to stop the tradition of this. That is no sport. That is cruelty to animals.No animal deserves to go thro torture like this.
