One of the cruelest rituals takes place in September in Tordesillas, during which a bull is viciously tortured and killed. In the latest event, Afligido was speared to death, his tail cut off while he was still alive.

The Toro de la Vega is notorious for its brutality; during this annual tradition, a bull is released into the streets, chased and harassed by some hundreds of men armed with lances. The bull is beaten with sticks and stabbed until he collapses from exhaustion and pain after which the final death blow is delivered.

      Animal Cruelty is a felony! What does stabbing an innocent animal do, it doesn't make you more of a man, it makes you a spineless helpless little man. It is so sad how someone can treat and animal that way, what if it was a human baby getting stabbed by swords, or getting dragged around by a chain that is around their neck. It is wrong and it needs to stop!

      because it's fucking disgusting. bulls are not the animal here, it's those sick bastards. torturing and slaughtering an animal is paramount to treating a person in the same manner, yet there's laws and "human rights" against that. what about universal declaration of animal rights?! it's time for the world to stand up, for fuck sake!!!!
