Re: Spanish Festivals

Just clarified today re our local bull runs

The bulls are not harmed injured assaulted etc in any way. Yes it's still wrong because the poor animals must be frightened running through a town instead of being in the countryside but there is no violence towards them

I am reliably informed in this village there have been 3 deaths in the past 7 years re the bull running ALL human- idiots coming out of the protective cages to provoke the poor animals

Re: Spanish Festivals

The Pamploma bull run maybe not like local as this one is cruel.


The same bulls who slip and slide down Pamplona's cobbled streets will be stabbed to death in the town's bullring later that day. Tourists who take part in the run are contributing to the carnage.




Discretion needed in watching,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yMZ...has_verified=1

But for the last 14 years, something else has also been happening in Pamplona every July. Kind people from every corner of Spain as well as from many other countries have been coming together to speak out against the cruelty and take part in a hard-hitting demonstration that makes headlines all around the world. In fact, heading to Pamplona to protest has become a tradition in itself, and it’s a compassionate alternative to the gruesome “festivities” later in the week .Pamplona again with Spanish group AnimaNaturalis making some noise for animals.

Re: Spanish Festivals

Yes I Hate the bull "traditions" but I have to accept local heritage

Animal cruelty is EVERYWHERE with some of the worst I have ever seen in Turkey

I remember specifically walking through central Fethiye and watching some scumbag drop kick a cat he was passing in the street. What made it even more disgusting is the amount of locals watching and all seemed to accept it as ok

Just like I had to accept the total bollox many Turks believe re cats in your house can give you cancer hence their cruelty to them- I have to avoid the barbaric treatment of bulls here

It is good that you do Philip... and agree there are cruel people everywhere and should be condemned.

It's a pity that you didn't take it for what it was against animal cruelty and accept the criticism of your new Homebase activities and not aimed at you, without what seems like the inevitable retaliatory kick back.

The difference for me is that whilst individuals( everywhere ) who attack animals of any sort should be condemned and when possible jailed.

the "bulls" is portrayed "entertainment " packaged for tourists to watch as fun and as the video said "the run" is now nothing to do with Spanish heritage but a drunken party package tour for the money. Not individuals personal cruelty but cruelty put on for the masses.
