    Exploitation

    I do think it's cruel. The animal cannot possibly enjoy it, and it is pure exploitation.

    I Hate It

    I once saw a TV programme about the bullfighting in Spain.  All the usual vile things I'd already heard about like maiming the poor animal so that it wasn't strong enough to fight back, and seeing blood pouring out of its wounds. The one that didn't die they tied cloths...

    Saw On T.v Once

     I watched this show once years ago. I think it was called "To love or to kill: man vs animal."   Anyways, they had one segment on bull fighting. It was horrible! The poor bull looked like a pin cushion by time they were done with him. I was crying it was so...

    Wasteful

    You should never kill if you dont eat the animal.  This is for show... Its as bad as a **** fight where they use razorblades. On the other hand, a food animal does have a small chance of harming his torturer....

    Bullfighting Is Just Plain Cruel

    How any country can have this bloody atrocity and call it a sport is horrifying. How does that teach people to be kind to animals? It doesn't.

    Not a Fair Fight

    Enough of this pitting man against bull. Let's call it what it is: a GROUP of men that torture and sufficiently weaken the bull so that the matador has a chance. That first stage of the fight, where the guys on horses stick the bull with sharp pecadillos? That's really...

    Matador As Artist

    "Bullfighting is the only art in which the artist is in danger of death and in which the degree of beauty in the work of art is left to the fighter's honor."   Ernest Hemingway

    It's Barbaric

    Imagine, you take an animal, sever it's neck tendons so it can't properly lift it's head, then slowly stab it to death, for no other reason than it's fun. Sound sick? Well that's bull fighting. It's ******* perverted!

    I Know Bullfighting Is Cruel

    Another horrifically cruel tradition called a "sport," and a "heritage". Spain, a modernized country, should be ashamed of its continued promotion of this torture of innocent animals, and the Running of the Bulls is equally atrocious. And this country should be equally ashamed...

    Are We Really "humane"?

    Can someone who loves bull-fighting please explain what is beautiful,artistic and humane about sticking arrows into an animal, and then calling it sport? It is just as humane as fox-hunting, whaling, clubbing baby seals and killing dolphins!

    Very Much

    A living creature is placed into an arena, tortured and forced to fight to their long, painful death in view of an audience, for the sake of entertainment, nothing more. What is more disturbing is, who on earth finds such a display as death, entertaining?  It resonates to...

    Revolting

    Bullfighting is monumentally cruel, with most 'fights'  usually concluding with the death of the bull by a sword thrust. It is synonymous with Spain, but is also, to their shame,  practiced in Portugal, Southern France and also in Tamil Nadu, India...

    How is this a sport again?  That photo ******* RILES me up, too.  Bullfighting is NO sport.  There's no teams.  Why don't they just go watch a guy kick a puppy to death.  Or maybe a baby would be more thrilling.  Fishing is no sport.  Hunting is...
