Animal-lovers present 85,000 signatures against bull-fighting to Madrid and Brussels
19 September 2013 @ 10:58

A PETITION with 85,000 signatures and an open letter addressed to the country's leaders of the PP and PSOE has been handed in personally in Madrid calling for the abolition of one of the largest and most bloodthirsty bull-fighting exhibitions in Spain.

The Toro de la Vega, which took place in the village of Tordesillas (Valladolid province) in central Spain on Tuesday despite over 15,000 people protesting against it in the streets of the capital at the weekend, has been a source of contention with animal-lovers for many years.

Silvia Barceló, head of the independent Partido Animalista (PACMA), or Pro-Animal Party – which currently does not have any representation in Parliament – says members wished to express their 'deep disappointment and discontent' that both of Spain's main political parties could 'allow, in the 21st century', for bulls to be 'lynched and executed with spears for entertainment purposes'.
