Spain- Ban "Pig-Sticking" as a Sport

  • by: Nyack Clancy
  • target: President of the Government of Spain, Mariano Rajoy Brey

The sport of pig-sticking dates back to Roman times,- and now Federico Diego, (a lead spear hunter), is campaigning to have pig-sticking registered as a legal form of hunting in Spain.

Lance-bearing horsemen corner wild boar and stab it to death with long, bladed spears. The animal dies a slow and painful death. It is inhumane, unnecessary cruelty- this ancient barbaric activity isn't "sport"- it just animal cruelty for entertainment- much like the cult of fox hunting.

We ask Spain not to register pig-sticking as a legal form of hunting, and ban this form of animal cruelty.
