Every year, approximately 250,000 bulls are killed in bullfights. The animals are stabbed multiple times before suffering slow, agonizing deaths in front of an audience, including children. Animal cruelty is not entertainment. You can help by not attending bullfights.
Bullfights are not "fair fights" between a bull and a matador, but highly staged forms of animal cruelty, sanctioned and subsidized by governments. These outdated spectacles perpetuate the idea that injuring and killing an animal for amusement is acceptable. With attendance at an all-time low and bans enacted by several countries and cities, bullfighting is on the decline; yet events still take place in Spain, France, Portugal, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, and Mexico. HSI is focusing in particular on ending government use of public funds to support the bullfighting industry. In addition, we are working to end child bullfighting.
