Bullfighting is such an incredibly cruel and gruesome form of “entertainment” that sometimes it’s easy to forget that it still goes on today. The “sport” involves mentally and physically torturing bulls for a few days before the match. Then, they are released into a ring, often drugged and physically impaired with Vaseline in their eyes or cotton in their nose, to be brutally killed. They have no chance against the picadors and matadors who will stab the bulls with 8-inch blades multiple times before stabbing the bull in the heart.
It’s shocking that some people can find enjoyment in watching and partaking in this ruthless murder of innocent bulls that sounds like it comes directly out of a horror film. In fact, most people don’t support bullfighting and are against its continued existence. Sadly, despite public disapproval, bullfighting continues. This video shows one of the lucky bulls that survived and was rescued from the bullfighting industry. Fadjen and his rescuer are best friends who love snuggling and showing others how sweet bulls are. You can watch more videos on their Youtube channel here. Also, sign this petition to tell the Spanish government not to bail out bullfighters to make sure this cruel bloodsport ends for good.
