According to an email from Anima Naturalis in Spain, bullfights have been canceled in the wake of the coronavirus. As public health officials urge people to stay away from crowds, events like bullfighting have been canceled.

According to the email, 21 bullfighting runs have been canceled which has saved 120 bulls. The website Animalis Naturalis reports that the Toro de Lidia Foundation has requested aid for the Support of the cruel industry. They have asked for a meeting to “be able to study the possibility of starting contingency, recovery and Support plans for the industry as soon as possible.”

Animalis Naturalis is urging people to write to the Minister of Culture, José Manuel Rodríguez Uribe, and urge him to reconsider financially helping the bullfighting industry. You can send the message here.
