About bullfighting, bulls, traditions and cruelty
Esta entrada es la traducción de esta otra entrada en español respecto a la tauromaquia, los toros, las tradiciones y la crueldad.
I have thought about writing this post after reading this news in El País:
The translation of the title of the previously linked article is that some tourists didn’t know that bulls are killed in the bullfights.
Many comments in the press agree that bullfighting languishes, that it is not economically profitable and that it only survives thanks to the support of public subsidies.
However, the aforementioned news has made me think that tourism may be a source of financing to a greater or lesser extent of that sadistic spectacle. The idea of this article, written both in Spanish and English, is to give an option for tourists to know what this cruel bullfighting activity is about, and to be able to choose more informatively if they decide to go to witness a bullfight.
