Bullfighting is a cruel form of entertainment, to call it a sport or even a fight is a misnomer. In the days leading up to the event, while the matador is eating well and resting, the bulls are locked into tiny boxes where they are beaten, starved, and even drugged in preparation. Before a match, they have Vaseline rubbed in their eyes to impair their vision, stripping away their ability to defend themselves. After leaving this sad existence, they will be sent to slaughter.

There is a huge misconception that bulls used for fighting are aggressive, naturally angry animals. However, if you take a look at the bull in the video above … this hardly seems to be the case. This sweet bull was saved from the fighting industry and from the way he snuggles up to the man who saved him, he seems incredibly happy to be finished with this sort of life.

The good new is that the tide of public sentiment is turning. In Spain, where bullfighting is a tradition, over 90 percent of the Spanish people disapprove of the public bloodbath. With attendance dwindling, tourists now make up a large portion of the audience. People are beginning to understand, that bulls are not the savage, aggressive animals that they have been made out to be. Hopefully, awareness is shifting and people are starting to realize that animals have feelings too.

Okay I'm not saying his intentions aren't good... but things like this get knocked down and all the good intent turns bad because it is made up. First, he bought the bull at an auction in FRANCE, and he guessed it might have been sent to spain to fight. Utter nonsense. They don't import bulls from just anywhere. In reality, the bulls for fighting come from a special line... and (from wiki): >>The Spanish Fighting Bull is an Iberian heterogeneous cattle population. It is primarily bred free-range on extensive estates in Spain, Portugal and Latin American countries<< So I'm glad his bull is nice. I hope it stays nice. And I am glad he has it as a pet instead of it probably being eaten (not used for fighting). But even if it was aggressive and not friendly, that doesn't make bullfighting okay. Spreading an invented story and making their being sweet the issue is just wrong. The nastiest of bulls doesn't deserve the horrible slaughtering for sport. That doesn't even begin to address what they do to the poor horses. Stop bullfighting because it is cruel and horrible, not because some French guy buys a bull and seeks his 15 mins of fame making up stuff for attention.

Must be from California where they think they know what\'s good for the rest of the world, even if they have to lie about it.
You must feel like a cornered rat, because you don\'t have a life, and you think that those that do are out to get you.
Relax, go back to watching your soaps.

Anyone who has worked with animals will know this is cynical anthropomorphic tat. I love cattle, fabulous animals, but affectionate and cuddly? No way.
