Stop Using Baby Calves for Bullfighting in Spain

Bullfight PACMA

Target: Emiliano Garcia-Page, President of Castilla-La Mancha

Goal: End the use of calves in bullfights.

Bullfighting is a violent tradition that is unfortunately still around today. About 1,000 bulls are killed each year due to these barbaric fights. However, things have taken a turn for the worse. In Valmojado, Spain, a baby bull was put into the arena to fight a grown man with a sword.

The baby bull was not even weaned off his mother’s milk before he was tossed into the arena for certain death. Bullfighting is already an unfair fight, and this baby didn’t even have fully grown horns to try to defend himself. The fight ended with the baby collapsing and spitting up blood.

Sign this petition and demand calves are no longer used in bullfights. Bullfighting is already sickening, but to put babies in the arena is even more disgusting.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Garcia-Page,

Bullfighting is a common tradition throughout Spain. However, not all traditions are meant to last. Bullfighting causes severe physical and mental pain to about 1,000 bulls every year.

In Valmojado, Spain, there is one unique difference in its bullfights. Instead of using full grown bulls, calves are thrown into the ring. These baby bulls, who are so young they are not fully weaned off their mother’s milk, do not even have fully grown horns to defend themselves. This is no fight, but a massacre.

Please put a ban on using calves in bullfights. Bullfighting is already horrible enough when an adult bull is used, but to throw babies into an arena for certain death is barbaric.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

      Yes, me, too, having problems with my email address. It tells me that my email address is already registered. I really want to sign the petition & I can’t because it is not taking my email address -very upsetting.

  4. I PRAY EVERYDAY THAT GOD SENDS A PLAGUE SO HORRIBLE THAT IT WIPES OUT EVERYONE THAT EATS, TORTURERS, RAPES, STARVES TO DEATH, MAIMS, SKINS ALIVE, CATS, DOGS, OR ANY ANIMAL! PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH DOG FIGHTING! PEOPLE WHO TORTURE ANIMALS AND SELL FOR GREED! THOSE THAT HAVE NO COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, AND THOSE THAT KILL FOR EVIL REASONS! IN JESUS NAME I PRAY!

  5. Shelli Schmidt says:

    Spain just doesn’t have any scruples, morals or the sense of right & wrong..It’s cowardly enough to torture & kill a bull but to force a BABY calf to fight is the lowest of low life forms..Congratulations Spain!

  6. Alison James says:

    It’s typical of Spain to do this. Medieval practices live!

  7. Stop animal abuse!!!! Quit being barbarians!!! Quit being Savages!!!! instead show mercy and compassion!!!

  8. I can’t get it to accept my email

  9. It won’t let me sign with my email address wtf

  10. Suzette DeBarros says:

    What kind of pleasure can grown men and women get from slaughtering defenseless animals, let alone a defenseless baby calf. Evil people!!!

  11. No doubt the men who fight bulls and support this practice think it proves to the world how brave and manly they are. The truth is that it only demonstrates exactly the opposite, which is how cowardly they are. Animals give to us constantly, their love, their labor, their skins and bodies. To repay them with cruelty only brings to mind the question: which species are the more evolved, and which are the beastly? Time for humanity to grow up.

  12. YOU ARE ALL CRAZY!! USING BABY CALVES FOR BULLFIGHTING!!!! ESTAN LOCOS!!! CRIMINALS!!!!! CRIMINALES!! THEY ARE BABIES FOR GOD SAKE!!!!! SON BEBES POR EL AMOR DE DIOS!!!! WHY DON’T YOU HUMANFIGHT BETWEEN YOURSELVES, BETWEEN MAN TO MAN AND SEE IF YOU LIKE IT!!!

  13. Joselyn Colon says:

    They think they’re brave fighting bulls or calves but in reality they are only cowards in a heartless act.

  14. Joann Silvestro says:

    This is atrocious and utterly cowardly. I don’t understand how causing the excruciating death of any animal, let alone these babies, can be a source of joy or accomplishment to anyone. I’m revolted by the cruelty of the whole thing. Make it stop!!

  15. LORENA DANIEL says:

    If you want to kill some thing bullfighters, why not kill yourselves and make the world a better place for the rest of us?

  16. The horror these bulls endure is beyond the pale — LISTEN, PEOPLE! — DO everything in your power to shut down ALL these bull fighting events — KEEP AT IT until these brutal, draconian, cruel, unconscionable, immoral events are ABOLISHED! — Animals can then be transferred to Sanctuaries where they can live their lives normally — happily and comfortably.

    ========

    Horrifically cruel & sadistic — where’s your conscience — where’s your empathy & compassion — where’s your rationality? — where’s your sanity? — SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG HERE, on many levels — SOCIETY MUST PUT A STOP TO THIS MONSTROUS SPECTACLE! — shame on all who do nothing!

  17. Abusing any animal is a terrible thing to do! Even fighting the grown bulls are sick enough, the joy some people get out torturing animals. Now these cowards are throwing babies, calves in the ring to torture them! Wow! Aren’t you brave? Stop hurting these poor animals. You people that love to torture animals,stop! So you people should get in the ring and kill each other, but first make sure each of you endure the pain, so you will get first hands on experience the pain you put these animals through! Ban bull fighting, and using calves to torture! Just get in the ring and fight each other! COWARDS!

  18. I also had it tell me my e-mail address was already registered. I used my secondary e-mail address & it worked. I wanted to use my main e-mail address.

  19. This event is just sickening! Anyone who finds this entertaining has a small brain. What they do to their hunting Dogs once they’re done with them is evil also. Have no respect for Spain anymore.
