LE FESTIVAL A ETE ANNULE!!!! AINSI QUE D' AUTRES OU DES TAUREAUX SONT MASSACRES
The Toro de la Vega “festival” has, until now, taken place every
September in the autonomic region of Castilla y Léon, Spain. The event
entails chasing a young bull through the streets of Tordesillas and
stabbing him with darts and spears until he is bleeding and crippled.
His tail is cut off while he’s still alive. When he dies of his
injuries, the person who ultimately killed him is awarded a ceremonial
spear and a medal by the city council.
Compassionate people, including tens of thousands of PETA supporters as well as local Spanish groups such as PACMA,
have been protesting against this cruelty for years. Now our efforts
have finally paid off! Thank you to everyone who has taken part in our
actions or otherwise spoken out against this cruelty.
This victory is part of a wider movement in Spain, as more and more
people are turning against events such as bullfighting and bull runs. To
date, more than 100 towns
have banned these events. The tide is turning against barbaric
so-called “traditions” – and with your help, we’ll keep on fighting
until no more animals suffer slow and painful deaths in the name of entertainment.
