Should bullfighting be banned?

    Why should animals suffer because of "human’s" GREED, FETTISH FOR “STRANGE” FOOD, PLEASURE, AND SADISTIC BEHAVIOUR? If people dont have compassion for animals - THEY ARE NOT WORTHY TO BE CALLED HUMANS!!! Criminal laws should be the same as for humans if not stricter because animals cannot fend for themselves. Somebody who enjoys treating animals cruelly and violently lack taste or refinement characterized by an uncivilized culture. They are undomesticated, non literate, primitive, barbaric and uncultivated savages. “PEOPLE” WITH A LOW IQ OR NONE !!!! We all have a role to play in positively changing the world in which we live. We each hold within ourselves unique qualities that we brought into this world….these qualities help us see the sole purpose of our existence. In order to live this purpose and make our contribution, we have to be our best selves and that means we have to protect, nurture, preserve, cherish, cultivate, and recognize the value of our animals and our earth. The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people

    Cruelty is contagious in uncivilized communities. Animal abuse is not just the result of a minor personality flaw in the abuser—it is a symptom of a deep mental disturbance and an EMPTINESS in the abuser. Beneath their hatred and hateful behavior lies a profound emptiness. For these inhumane, MONEY HUNGRY brainless “beings” ways of filling this emptiness is with rage, anger, hatred and just being outright SADISTIC towards animals! Anyone who has accustomed himself to regard the life of any living creature as worthless is in danger of arriving also at the idea of worthless human lives . Violent acts toward animals have long been recognized as indicators of a dangerous psychopathy that does not confine itself to animal abuse. Animal abuse is not just the result of a minor personality flaw in the abuser—it is a symptom of a deep mental disturbance. Somebody who enjoys treating animals cruelly and violently lack taste or refinement characterized by an uncivilized culture.

    The comments in the article describe correctly what the bull has to endure but this isn't even half of the barbarity of this disgusting spectacle. The bull is captured and put in an 8x3 foot box for two days. It has wet newspaper stuffed in his ears and nose to impede respiration and hearing, he has vaseline rubbed into his eyes to impair his vision. His horns are filed down to impede his estimation of distance. A caustic solution (acid in other words) is put on his legs to torment him and keep him moving. Needles are put into the bulls testicles to drive him crazy basically. And that's not the end of it. The cruelest part of it all for me is that after two days in a box with no light, food or water, the door is opened and the bull runs for the light thinking he is escaping the nightmare only to run into the arena where six sadists stand with lances ready to kill him and another 10000 sickos stand jeering and clapping waiting for this innocent animal to tortured to death. Oh and the bit about the sword. That was a bit light on description and what actually happens if the matador hits the mark. If the sword is driven into the body it is driven into the heart and lungs so he starts vomiting blood and as the bull moves, the sword slices through his organs minute by minute until the bull suffocates and drowns in his own blood. But if the sword doesn't hit the mark, the poor bull then has a dagger driven into his spine behind his head to sever the spinal column. This, if successful, leaves him completely paralysed but more often than not conscious while his ears and tail are cut off and then he is dragged out of the arena still conscious to receive the final insult of having his throat cut whilst most probably still conscious. You have to wonder what desperate, panic stricken thoughts must be going through his mind through all this and wondering what the hell he did to deserve this. Enough is enough. It's time to put an end to it. And this is another reason why hunting with dogs cannot be brought back. I have held my head high when in Spain while alluding to the better treatment of animals in the UK but if this bill is passed, I will no longer be able to say that the Brits treat animals much better because it would then be a lie. Lobby your MP to vote against hunting with dogs and lobby your MEP todo everything they can to get bullfighting stopped once and forever.

    Every day thousands of animals are systematically and mercilessly abused, tortured and exploited. Animals that have no means of defending themselves are being victimized by the ones that God called to care for them.

    Animals are God’s creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God’s sight....Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God’s absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering (Linzey, All Creation Liberation).

    The current plight of animals is heart-breaking to me. Instead of being respected and protected by man, animals are being subjected to cruelty, suffering and oppression. And their suffering is rapidly increasing and is being largely ignored.

    What should move our very hearts and sicken us,… is the realization that animals are morally innocent, that they have done no harm. Next they have no power whatever of resisting; it is the cowardice and tyranny of which they are victims which makes their suffering so especially touching... there is something so very dreadful, something so dreadful, so satanic, in tormenting those who have never harmed us and who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power …” (Linzey, Animal Gospel 65).

    I can't believe that there are so many heartless people out there!!! It breaks my heart to see this!!! ...And the people that go to these events are just as responsible for all the pain and suffering that they cause to these innocent souls!!! OJALÁ QUE MUERAN DE LA MISMA MANERA, HIJOS DEL DEMONIO!!!!!!

    I don't like blood sports because they revive hidden instincts in all of us, people who hide behind the excuse of tradition. should be ashamed, the time has come for a total ban, we are civilized now and as such these practicies belong in the past.
