Petition – End the Cruel Bullfighting in the Balearic Islands

via Humane Society International

Help ban bullfighting in the Balearics!

Thousands of bulls are tormented and killed during bullfights in Spain. This bloodsport is gaining a strong and growing opposition from Spanish citizens, who think that public entertainment can never excuse cruelty to animals.

Recently, more than 140,000 citizens added their voice to the Mallorca Without Blood campaign, led by AnimaNaturalis and CAS International, which aims to end bullfighting in the Spanish Balearic Islands.

Members of the Balearic Islands will soon vote on the future of bullfighting in their region, where 31 towns have already expressed their opposition to this barbaric practice.

Join us in ensuring that the Balearic Islands becomes the third Spanish Autonomous Community to ban cruelty to bulls by sending a letter to Spanish politicians!

The San Fermin bull running festival in Pamplona, Spain commences on Monday 6th July. The main component of the festival, the bull running, commences on the second day and will see many bulls, up until the 14th July, subjected to the arduous mental and physical torture of being forced to participate in the bull runs before their public executions in front of thousands of jeering tourists in the bullfights that follow.

Please join us in opposing the Pamplona Bull Run and bullfighting by sending a message to Topdeck Travel today, asking them not to continue promotion of trips to Pamplona

Bullfighting – why?

I can’t imagine the terror a bull must feel as it is chased, slapped, punched and yelled at as it runs through crowds. I can’t image the fear it must feel when a group of people surround it and kill it with knives, fists and whatever else they have handy. I can’t imagine how it must feel when, in its dying moments, it sees two men fighting over who claims the ‘honour’ of dealing the killing blow. And I can’t even begin to imagine what is wrong with these people, that they see it as ok to frighten, abuse and torture a living creature.

Please read this article and sign the petition, calling on the EU to stop using public funding for these cruel, barbaric events. Public funding of over £110 MILLION, which could be used for healthcare or education.

Let’s make change happen, sign the petition and together we can help make this world a better and safer place for animals.
