Pros and Cons of Bullfighting
By:Kaylee Fry
Con #2
The treatment of bulls in the
ring is often very agonizing, and bulls often die a slow painful death, dying in anguish and extreme physical suffering.
Con #3
In bullfighting, the bulls aren't the only animals that suffer. Horses used in the ring by matadors are often harmed by the bull because the bull views it as an enemy. It is not uncommon for horses to have to be put down because of their extensive injuries.
Con #4
Often times, the animals used in bullfighting are conditioned to feel more pain to make the show more interesting. A bulls body parts may be cut off while the bull is still alive, and their horns may be shaved down to make them very sensitive to pain.
In all, Bullfighting is a traditional spectacle of Spain, Portugal, southern France and some Latin American countries in which one or more bulls are baited and usually killed by a matador in a bullring for sport and entertainment.
