Bullfighting in 60 Seconds
This is bullfighting. The bull is afraid and confused. Blood gushes from his wounds as he’s stabbed over and over again. He falls down, writhing in pain. Then he dies — slowly. One minute is all you need to see to know that this torture is wrong.
Ricky Gervais Slams Bullfighting
“It seems absurd that some people have fun with the suffering of animals.”
Pamplona: Running of the Bulls
The Pamplona Bull Run takes place during the San Fermin Festival in Spain each year from the 6th to 14th July. The running of the bulls is the highest profile part of the festival, and occurs every morning during which six bulls and six steer are released from a corral (a livestock pen), and the sound of a rocket lets runners know they can start to run in front of the bulls. Although it usually only lasts a few minutes, the run is a traumatic experience for the bulls, culminating in them being herded into a bullring where they will be killed in a bullfight later that day.

Bullfighting Cruelty and Cowardice Exposed
It’s not a fight — it’s a systematic torture killing that pits a gang of armed thugs against a lone, frightened, wounded animal. This video exposes the shame of bullfighting, and the cowardice of those involved.
Blood Fiestas Spain
Every year in Spain over 16,000 celebrations with animal abuse take place. Animal Equality has documented events such as the cruel becerradas and novilladas, revealing unseen images of violence and brutality. Animals are beaten, stoned, kicked and chased by vehicles until collapsing exhausted whilst small calves, less than two years old, suffer an agonizing and painful death. These are just some of the findings revealed during the investigation which uncover the enormous suffering that bullfights force upon animals.
Burning of the Bulls: 'Toro de Jubilo' Spanish festival
A bull is tied to a post by his horns and a plank of wood attached to a metal bar doused in pitch — a highly combustible mixture of turpentine and sulphur. Fiercely hot sparks and embers drip from the burning torches onto the bewildered animal. The distressed bull is then released, thrashing around the ring to the cheers of the crowds. Members of the public are seen jumping into the ring and taunting the bull — adding to his terror and confusion.
Toro de la Vega
La verguenza nacional. October 2007. The annual “Fiestas Mayores” in Tordesillas take place in the second week of September. The “fiestas” or “feast days” are in honour of the patron Saint of the town and surrounding area, Our Lady, the Virgin of the Cliff. The bloodiest day is the Tuesday when the famous “El Toro de la Vega” run takes place.
Bous a la Mar / Bulls to the Sea
The Valencian town of Dénia works itself up into a frenzy for the much-anticipated Toros/Bous a la Mar. This atavistic idiocracy is staged annually to commemorate the Day of the Sacred Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ (el Día de la Santísima a Sangre de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo). This outrage happens every year between the July 3-11. It’s not the first time that bulls die either drowned or by other causes; they are also chased with sticks and kicked.
La verguenza del Toro de Coria 1de2
One of Spain’s worst “festivals” of animal cruelty takes place in the village of Coria. A bull is forced to run for hours through the streets while villagers taunt the animal and throw darts at him. When the bull is too tired and weak from loss of blood to keep going, the villagers shoot him and cut off his testicles while he is still alive. This horrific cruelty occurs every year between June 23-29.
