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.
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.
