Every year, hundreds of fiestas involving the use of bulls take place across Spain. The animals are chased, injured, taunted and killed in public spectacles that desensitize those who witness them. Cruelty is not entertainment.

The type and scale of these events vary. Some are openly publicized to tourists and others are held privately for local citizens. At least one event has been declared “cultural heritage” by politicians.

At “fire bull fiestas,” bulls' horns are set alight and the animals teased by onlookers while firecrackers explode all around. In other instances, men on horseback with long spears pursue and corner bulls who, when finally exhausted, are stabbed to death.

With our partners and many thousands of compassionate animal advocates, HSI is campaigning to end these pointless, heartless activities. Please join us.
