This must be stopped. Spaniards are one of the most bestial societies on earth. Shame on them.

Reporters need to show discretion when following stories that portray the perfect example of animal cruelty and human stupidity.  If the media does not pay attention - no one else will either and maybe this will eventually go away.  I am greatly saddened by how backward and barbaric the human race can be.

Ladylou007, you are absolutely right. This torturing and killing the bulls is absolutely barbaric. THE EU should force the Spaniards to stop and end this brutal horrible spectacle once and for all, and if they refuse, kick them completely out of the EU. At least their neighbours, the Portuguese, do not kill the bulls, instead heal their wounds by taking them to the veterinary so they can recover and fight again.This is also brutal and unacceptable, but at least it is a little more humane.

Bullfighting is an Iberian peninsula aberration, depredation and abomination.
