Re: “The Last American Matador

Bullfighting: It's not ART; it's not CULTURE; it's not SPORT; it's TORTURE (ask the MAJORITY of the people in the bullfighting countries of Spain; Portugal; France; Mexico; Colombia; Ecuador; Guatemala; Peru and Venezuela that are working on, and passing BANS and ABOLITION of bullfights).

Bullfighting: The most indefensible and abhorrent type of animal abuse.

Bullfighting is not a fight at all, but a systematic torture-killing that pits a gang of armed thugs wielding razor-sharp barbed spikes, spears, swords and daggers (these weapons are designed to inflict intense pain and cause massive blood loss to weaken the animal) against a lone, terrified; confused; fatally disabled and wounded animal.

It's a SICKENING economic industry based on HORRIFYING victimization; sadistic abuse; extreme cruelty and mutilation and torture of bulls (and horses) during the cruel exhibitions of bullfights (which are BARBARIC "blood" fiestas).

So-called "bloodless" bullfights are practiced in the U.S., where (prior to the abuse in the ring) the bulls are "mutilated" (their horns are (up to 4'') painfully "sawed-off" to "interfere" with the bull's "ability to navigate"; they are locked-up in darkness; terrified; confused; teased, harassed; tormented (and injured) only to be killed once outside the arena, in a Mexican bullfight; a slaughterhouse or elsewhere: United States: "The Truth Behind Bloodless Bullfighting [HQ]" https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v…
only to be killed once outside the arena, in a Mexican bullfight; a slaughterhouse or elsewhere.

In these events bullfighters perform who "mutilate; torture and kill" many bulls during regular "bloody" bullfights: "Close-up Horror of Bullfighting (Graphic)" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvwQ4Dmlur8
Although the bullfights in America are supposedly bloodless, bulls and horses are still subjected to large amounts of abuse and stress and the risk of getting wounded.

The bullfighting industry is losing ground in the bullfighting countries and that is why they are trying to export their bloody business to other countries. Since it is prohibited to torture and kill bulls in the United States, they have invented bloodless bullfights, to promote their sadistic industry in an "innocent" form.

However, the same industry does not have a problem with killing defenseless animals. The money they generate from the bullfights in America is used to promote their blood sport. Furthermore, people who visit the bullfights may mistakenly think that bullfighting is not that cruel, while it is one of the most cruel forms of animal abuse.

We must not allow the bullfighting industry to continue promoting their bloody business in America. America has many great events to offer, without sadistic animal abuse and cruelty.

Bloodless bullfighting in our country of America is DISGRACEFUL and should be, and remain BANNED because it is, and always will be (in any "form"); a "Tradition of CRUELTY."

We must call for a PERMANENT BAN on all future bullfighting events planned in America and let the bullfighting industry know that America is not interested in bullfighting.

The bullfights that have already been organized in Las Vegas, Nevada were a big failure: only a few people attended the events and the bullfighting industry lost money.

This is reason enough to PERMANENTLY BAN all bullfights in the USA: people want this abuse and cruelty to STOP.

Bloody or "bloodless," bullfighting is a "senseless, degrading" spectacle that has no place in a civilized society.

Please Help these "suffering" animals – STAY AWAY FROM BULLFIGHTS; speak out against them and DEMAND that they be ABOLISHED.
