    1. Bull fight update - Thank you for your support

      Unfortunately, because of time contraints, while we were unable to stop this horror show this year, we have raised awareness this event is not acceptable and your signatures helped get that message across loud and clear. Next year we will work on this earlier to try and prevent it from happening.

      Toronto Animal Services do not have jurisdiction over this venue however OSPCA does. TAS asked OSPCA to accompany them and oversee the fights. I received a report from the Head of Toronto Animal Services. It's not what we wanted but under the circumstances it was the best anyone could do. The animals were inspected before and after the fights, especially the horses one of which had been hit by a bull. The horse appeared to be unaffected. There was a vet on site during the fights.

      Thank you to all who supported this petition. We garnered over 2000 signatures in less than a week. Next year will be a different story.

      the fact that so many people are 'ok' abt going thru the motions of a bullfight is beyond disgusting - not Canadian values - not ever! They can leave Canada if they need this kind of 'fetish harm' to identify with at an ethnic festival. Also disgusting is that it was allowed.
