Ban Bullfights in Mexico City
- by: World Animal Protection - USA

Bullfights involve torturing naturally peaceful animals by causing immense fear, stress and pain to the bulls and cows involved. The animals are tormented and painfully attacked throughout the fights, causing prolonged suffering and trauma.
Bullfighting is one of the worst forms of animal abuse and is completely unjustifiable!
Annually, an estimated 250,000 animals suffer globally due to spectacle events such as bullfighting. More bulls are killed in Mexico City than anywhere else in the world, and the city's Legislative Assembly will soon be voting on a measure that would ban the practice.
Please help us ensure that this horrific and cruel practice is brought to an end in Mexico City.

Dear Diputado Jose Luis Munoz Soria,
I with to express strong support for a bullfight ban in Mexico City.
Bullfights are unjustifiable spectacles that involve torture and cause fear, stress and pain to the animals involved. The animals are tormented and painfully attacked throughout the fights, causing immense suffering and trauma for extended periods of time. Animals often suffer non-fatal injuries, such as perforated lungs, and can die prolonged agonizing deaths. There is no defense for the suffering caused by bullfights to these naturally peaceful animals.
Last year, bullfights were abolished in the Spanish region of Catalonia following a local initiative and global support to end the practice. Millions of people around the world are not looking at Mexico City to follow suit. Mexico City has the opportunity to show the world that it is a national developing sustainably, and maintaining high animal welfare standards while striving to achieve this aim.
