Peru- Stop Using Endangered Condors in Bullfights

  • By: Animal Advocates
  • Target: Peru Ministry of Environment, Mr. Jose AntonioGonzalez Norris
Yawar Fiestas, are held each year in 38 villages across the Peruvian Andes at least once a year. Townspeople take turns running in front of a bull enraged by a condor tired into its back. A Condor is strapped to a bulls back and then they have a bullfight.


The bird, long threatened with extinction, is tortured and abused as they pull at its wings, tie it onto a bull that's jumping and kicking and if it does not die then it flies away so traumatized it dies somewhere else. There are no more than 500 condors in Peru, and the population is in decline.

The condor's survival in Peru is also threatened by shrinking habitat due to development, including large mining projects in the highlands, the trafficking of its feathers and body parts and loss of food sources.

Stop this superstitious, traditional blood festival and protect the endangered Peruvian Condor.
