This is yet another unfortunate setback in bullfighting and animal welfare.

(ANIMAL RIGHTS) French food banks are receiving harsh criticism from displeased animal rights supporters after receiving meat from bulls killed in bullfights. Activists such as Thierry Hely, spokesman for France's FLAC anti-bullfighting association, condemn the food banks acceptance of the meat, which came from "particularly revolting suffering." This argument over meat allotment should not overshadow the underlying matter: bullfighting. This inhumane and despicable form of entertainment inflicts suffering on the animals involved and should be put to an end. Read on to learn more about this recent controversy. — Global Animal
(ANIMAL ABUSE) SPAIN — Despite one region of Spain deciding to abolish bullfighting within the last year, another much smaller town in Spain is actually funding the inhumane act. The residents of Guijo de Galisteo took a vote last weekend, asking the mayor to spend €10,000 on bullfighting rather than creating jobs for the already poverty-stricken, largely unemployed region. While awareness about the inhumane practice of bullfighting has increased, it still no doubt lives on. Read on to uncover the staggering numbers voting in favor of bullfighting. — Global Animal

Unlike Catalonia, which banned bullfighting a few years back, the government in Madrid has yet to follow suit. Now Madrid has decided to grant the cruel spectacle of bullfighting protected status and make it feasible to allow public funds to promote and protect this “cultural” event. So as Spain continues to allocate public funding for an event the majority of its citizens don’t support and every reasonable human being detests, the country's youth continues their slog through a jobless quagmire.
