Stop Slaughtering Bulls With Swords, Lances and Barbed Darts for the ‘Sport’ of Bullfighting

Target: Richard Ferrand, President of France’s National Assembly

Goal: Ban bullfighting that causes grotesque injuries and a thousand-plus deaths.

A court acknowledged that bullfighting caused “great suffering”…suffering that includes grotesque injuries and infections. The instruments of this suffering include swords, lances, and barbed darts. And the outcomes of the suffering in bullfighting range from debilitating head and neck trauma to death. In France alone, the country where the aforementioned court is located, about 1,000 bulls are killed every year. But after talking about the suffering and cruelty that defines bullfighting, judges at the court in question declared that local customs carry greater weight than animal cruelty. They ruled against the Society for the Protection of Animals (SPA) in a case the animal rights organization brought against a bullfighter for “shocking and barbaric” animal cruelty. Then, to pour salt in the wound of animal welfare advocates everywhere, they ordered the SPA to pay the defendant’s court fees.

This case represents the latest loss in a long battle against French bullfighting. Despite having strong animal cruelty laws for nearly every other class of animal, none of these laws protect vulnerable bulls. In areas where bullfighting has long been practiced, the barbarity of this supposed “entertainment” is exempt from any liability or criminality. The courts will obviously not intervene on behalf of these living beings, so lawmakers must at last take the reins.

Sign the petition below to demand France abolish this sick blood-sport once and for all.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Ferrand,

Stab wounds, burns, gory infections, broken bones: such injuries inflicted on a wide scale would shock the conscience of any caring person. If you heard that such torturous injuries took the lives of over 1,000 living beings every year, would you be outraged? Would the outrage turn to confusion if you discovered such brutal behaviors were permitted by your leaders…by yourself?

No amount of waxing poetic about tradition and custom can hide the fact that this reality is the face of bullfighting in France. The country has some of the strongest animal cruelty laws in the world, and you pride yourselves on civility and empathy. This violent practice defies every assertion you make, and it makes a mockery of French ideals.

Please take the only possible step forward. Abolish a deadly form of entertainment that no longer has a place in a humane society.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. No right thinking person can think this is anything but sanctioned murder!! Unimaginable and prolonged torture, suffering and death inflicted on sentient, defenseless animals by evil, twisted, immoral, soulless, barbaric bastards who believe they are above other animals. These are the actions of vile, brainless human monsters. It’s the 21st century. We are no longer supposed to be savages. SICKENING.

  2. WHY & Who thinks this is a sport it is nothing but ponced up monster abusing an animal for there own sick gratification. Watch by very very sick twisted soulless dehumanised scum

  3. Trina Takahashi says:

    This is one of many incredibly cruel “sports” that should be banned forever! It should remain only in history as a reminder of the many unjustifiable and sickening things humans have done to our fellow earthlings.

  4. THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST BARBARIC “SPORT” EVER. THIS IS UNBELIEVABLY CRUEL TO THE POOR ANIMALS. THIS IS A DISGUSTING AND SICKENING EVENT. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN BANNED AND OUTLAWED A LONG TIME AGO. THESE POOR BULLS DID NOT ASK TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS BARBARIC ACT OF VIOLENCE AGAINST THEM. THIS IS NOT CULTURE OR TRADITION – IT IS PURE ANIMAL CRUELTY AND IT IS UNACCEPTABLE.

  5. Truly l despicable horrific torture and murder of sentient animals. Mankind at its most vile. May all involved suffer the exact same terror and pain you so willingly inflict on these poor animals. Umanity at its worst.

  6. Raymond Stevens says:

    These third world countries with their barbaric sport slaughter of animals should be brought to heel. This is an evil, intolerable activity.

  7. Agree all comments put this fuckers in a ring and do the same to them. Whats wrong with people and this world who ever is allowing this needs to have the same done to them. STOP THIS CRUELTY NOW AND LAWS CHANGE NOW. These people are cunts.

  8. This horror must stop! This is not a sport, its cold blooded murder of innocent animals.

  9. This ugly tormenting of animals is despicable and for sick people to like. It’s disgusting and it must STOP. It’s BARBARIC and very CRUEL. Why don’t THEY get a life. A REAL life

  10. Maybe these wannabe macho men should have a nice Panadol with their little drinky at Siesta time to take their minds off torturing and killing animals in cowardly unfair fights?

  11. KILL these DEHUMANIZED, DESENSITIZED, SADISTIC and PSYCHOPATHIC HUMAN SCUM INSTEAD. THESE “MACHOS” are nothing but HUMAN SHIT!!!!! They don’t deserve this planet. HUMAN STINKING SCUM!!!

    • Urszula Lund – I definately agree with your comment.
      “KILL these DEHUMANIZED, DESENSITIZED, SADISTIC and PSYCHOPATHIC HUMAN SCUM INSTEAD. THESE “MACHOS” are nothing but HUMAN SHIT!!!!! They don’t deserve this planet. HUMAN STINKING SCUM!!!”
      The vile and evil public all deserve to be tortured to death. They are definately psychopathic monsters who enjoy watching and hearing the screams of the precious Bulls being tortured to death by the vilest of deliberate animal torture, suffering and an agonising death committed against these innocent and defenceless Bulls Worldwide. Also the precious and innocent Calves die in agony when these monsters are training the evil kids to torture and murder the precious Calves. And also the precious Horses suffer in agony during these Bull torturing murdering Bullfighting that causes grotesque injuries and a thousand-plus deaths.

  12. This is sickening, disgusting, and heartbreaking. This should have been outlawed long long ago.

  13. There are a lot of “cultural practices” that need to be thrown into the dustbin of history. This is one of them. Unfortunately, there are many others. It’s way past the time we start to care properly for our fellow earthlings.

  14. STOP THIS MONSTROSITY!!KILL EVERYONE WO IS INVOLVED AND FACILITATES THIS!!!!

  15. EVIL, WICKED, VILE PEOPLE DOING THIS TO ANY ANIMALS. THERE IS NOTHING SO CALLED, CULTURAL, ABOUT THIS. CRUEL, PAINFUL DISGUSTING ACTION TOWARDS ANIMALS. STOP IT NOW. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU, YOU ARE DISGUSTING AND NEED TO REALISE YOUR ACTIONS ARE WICKED AND EVIL.

  16. Stephanie Geyser says:

    Les Français sont aussi barbares que les Espagnols. Pas étonnant que les Britanniques aient voté pour le Brexit. Et dire que notre peuple a dû mourir en 1944 pour libérer les Français sous-humains des nazis.

  17. It is a sad day when judges declare that local customs carry greater weight than animal cruelty. Pure ignorance describes a decision like this. To completely ignore the pain and suffering caused by having swords and knives forcibly pushed through bodies of living flesh by Men is beyond words. These “Judge’s” do not represent the good of the land.

  18. Find the sick freaks that do this and do to them what they do to these innocent animals.

    How low can motherfucking so-called “humans” stoop? I suggest we skewer them and their families. We don’t want any more of them slithering out from under the rocks. Those poor, helpless bulls. Heartbreaking.
