Celebrity Pamela Anderson has spoken out on Bull fighting saying "There is nothing remotely entertaining about stabbing bulls to death in bullfighting arenas". She is also demanding and end to government subsidies of the industry [http://www.thelocal.es/20131023/pamela-anderson-backs-ban-of-cruel-bullfights]. Pressure is growing against Bull Fighting, please help the cause and share this petition as widely as possible!
The government of Spain has given its endorsement to the national broadcaster to show Bull Fighting during TV family viewing hours. A group of opposition parties were attempting to ban the practice in order to protect children from scenes of animal cruelty and violence. The move to ban coverage of the fights came after the national broadcaster showed scenes from a Bull Fight in September.
Bull fighting has been banned in many parts of Spain and the practice is losing support nationally. Despite this the government still believes it is okay for kids to watch this on TV. The Bulls suffer through immense pain for long periods of time before slowly bleeding out at which time the Bull Fighter strikes a fatal blow. The torture last about 20 minutes before the suffering creature is killed.
Dear Mariano Rajoy Brey,
We the undersigned demand you put an end to Bull Fighting shows during children's viewing hours. As you know many Spaniards are rejecting the cruel practice, and it is time that the national government recognizes that Bull Fighting should be consigned to history.
The suffering that Bulls go through during these fights is pure cruelty that is not necessary. Please use your influence as the leader of Spain to remove these shows from family TV.
