Bull fightings is a traditional spectacle of Spain, Portugal, southern France and some Latin American countries (Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Peru),[2] in which one or more bulls are baited, and then slaughtered in a bullring for sport and entertainment.As such is often called a blood sport by its detractors, but followers of the spectacle regard it as a 'fine art' and not a sport as there are no elements of competition in the proceedings. Bull fighting is a horrible, gruesome, and an evil act towards bulls. Not only do they slaughter them in front of thousands of people, but they torture them until they cant take any more. After the bull has been hooked multiple times behind the shoulder by other matadors in the arena the bullfight usually concludes with the killing of the bull by a single sword thrust which is called estocada. The animal is brutally slaughtered. And the worst part is when people feel bad for the matadors who get injured by the bull. The bull is trying desperately to save its life. Men go into an area with it and stab it multiple times and now they want sympathy? If humans were to be harassed in a arena and ran around until they were too tired to fight and than killed by an animal, i think humans would feel much sympathy for that person as it is an act of evilness. it's hard enough that we kill millions of animals every year for our consumption, but dont harass an animal.
Bull fighting is not different then any other evil act towards animals that us humans do. It is important for us to stop this brutal sport. Their has to be a stop to this, and if u consider your self a true lover of animals, you will sign this petition to stop bull fighting.

      One of the cruelest things that exists in the world, isn't that enough?

      This is in no way a sport. This reminds me of schoolyard bullies. The bull has nowhere to go to escape his antaganists. They goad him relentlessly. And in the end, they kill him. There is nothing honourable about about this so-called sport. Everything is wieghted in the matador's favour. This is the 21st century, not Ancient Rome (feeding the Christians to the lions)
