NYT – Bullfighting, seen by many Spaniards as an essential component of their cultural patrimony, could suffer its biggest setback to date on Wednesday when lawmakers in Catalonia will vote on whether to ban fights in their region.

Such a ban would be “the most important victory for animal rights that we’ve had,” according to Aida Gascón, the national director of AnimaNaturalis, an organization that has long campaigned against what it considers to be a barbaric and outdated practice.


Good luck to the vote. I hate bullfighting, because of the senseless, vile cruelty to the animal.
