Your Holiness Pope Francis I,
Every year, in Spain, tens of thousands of bulls are killed and tortured in religious festivities in Spain. From "La Feria de San Isidro" where there are bullfights everyday for over a month, to "La Feria de San Fermin", to religious festivities in small villages that involve the killing and torture of bulls and calfs. Because bulls are sentient animals that have the right to live just like people do, I ask to you, Your Holiness, to publicly condemn those festivities that are highly connected with Religion but only result in the abuse of other living beings.
