Bullfighting has it’s origin in the former sky of the Age of the Gods. Theseus slaying the Minotaur the half man half bull. Perseus killing the Bull of Heaven. And the Sumerian Gilgamesh doing the same. But culture or religion does not justify barbaric behavior. The bull is stabbed repeatedly with a pica which is a knife. He is also wounded in the shoulders and neck with a large barbed banderillas dart. He is starved and isolated. Then drugged right before entering the arena. After that the young bull is harassed by a clown, teased by a Matador and mocked by a jeering crowd. Afterwards he is murdered. Tradition or not – There is no excuse for animal abuse!
