===========================================================

Honorable Officials of Spain:

Animal cruelty is not acceptable as entertainment or tradition in the 21st
Century. Yet the Toro Jubilo annually occurs in Medinaceli, a province of
Soria, Spain. Jeering mobs harass a bull with balls of burning tar or
turpentine (called “pitch”) attached to his horns. A bull’s horns, body and
eyes are scorched. Some try to escape hours of agony by smashing into walls.

Archaic spectacles tarnish Spain’s reputation and hinder tourism. I cannot
support any society that ignores the senseless brutalization of animals. I
will advise others to join me in a boycott of Spanish tourism and commerce
until the Toro Jubilo and other blood fiestas are permanently banned.

I urge Spanish officials to enforce stronger animal cruelty laws that shield
animals from all forms of abuse, including vulgar rituals and blood fiestas.

While different cultures may not understand each other’s customs, all
rational humans comprehend cruelty. Setting fire to a live animal — known
as Toro de Fuego or “bull on fire” — is sadistic.

It is time for all regions of Spain to subscribe to the ethical doctrines
that shape our civilized world. Heritage, entertainment, art and religion
never justify outright torture.

Thank you,

  1. My husband and I were going to Europe in May 2009.
    We were going to visit Spain for 3 weeks.
    We knew about bull fights, but to now find out that you put bulls on fire has changed our plans dramatically.
    We will not spend our tourist money in Spain.
    A digusting barbaric ritual of enjoying torture.
    Shame on you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Join the rest of the CIVILIZED WORLD and legislate animal rights, as many more tourists will NOT VISIT SPAIN.

  2. shame on you, stop this hidous festival, you are a civilised nation, have a great culture, are you not ashamed with such ‘festivals” they are notning else than tortures

  3. I agree with Veronica Lach in that The “Bulls on Fire” festival is hideous. No “civilised nation” would tolerate such cruelty. I stopped visiting Spain a number of years ago because of the widespread torture of bulls. I would encourage others to boycott Spain and to avoid buying anything which originates from Spain until these sickening practices are banned.

  4. this is brutal… with the technology we have today there are many ways that people can keep the festivals authentic without torturing defenseless animals

  5. WHY DO PEOPLE FIND THE ACT OF TORTURING ANIMALS ENJOYABLE. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THESE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THE EXACT SAME THING DONE TO THEM. SOMEONE HAS TO STOP THIS. SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE. WHY IS THIS ALLOWED TO GO ON? I DONT UNERSTAND MAN ANYMORE AND DONT THINK I WANT TO. IT IS APPALLLING TO KNOW THAT SUFFERING IS NOW A PLEASURE,HOBBY, ENJOYMENT AND FULFILLING TO PEOPLE. I CRY ALL THE TIME FOR ALL OF THESE POOR BABIES. I RESCUE ALL KINDS OF ANIMALS AND AM ON MEDICATION FOR POST TRAUMATIC DISORDER FOR THE CONSTANT THOUGHTS OF ANIMALS BEING ABUSED.
