Four Dead, Hundreds Injured As Arena Stands Collapse During Bullfight

Published: June 26, 2022 at 05:53 PM Author: Penny Eims



El Espinal, Colombia – On Sunday, June 26, at least four people were killed and hundreds injured when an arena stand collapsed during a bullfight in El Espinal, Colombia.

Video captured the moment that the stand buckled and fell forward during the event, plunging hundreds of people to the ground.

A statement from the Mayor’s Office of Espinal said they “deeply regret what happened in the bullring.”

President-elect Gustavo Petro Tweeted:

I hope that all the people affected by the collapse of the Plaza de El Espinal can come out of their wounds unscathed. This had already happened before in Sincelejo.

I ask the mayors not to authorize more shows with the death of people or animals.

The death toll may rise as emergency crews work to clear the rubble to access people trapped beneath the stands.

Hospitals in the area are said to be struggling to handle the huge influx of patients. More victims may be found as emergency responders work to clear away the rubble.

This is not a petition, but Animal Victory recently published a petition asking for cruel bullfighting events to be halted. Click here to learn more.

Good job – hope they are suffering BIG TIME !! That’s what you get when you sit and watch animals being tortured to death for “entertainment”. Karma did it’s job.

Bullfighting is a sick ritual that certain people are addicted to. They will all suffer from this sickness whether they know it or not. Bullfighting must end. Stop the violence!

I don’t give a flying frack about the people who were killed or injured to be honest. They were there to watch a bull slowly be killed so like others here I feel they got just what they deserved. At least the bull survived (for now).

It is disgusting that these events exist in the world. It truly represents how sick mankind is. Perhaps they take this as a sign to stop. Everyone who spectated in seeing an animal tortured deserved to die themselves. Unfortunately they were only injured.

The real tragedy here, is that the matador wasn’t under the structure when it collapsed! As for everyone that was killed or injured, couldn’t have happened to a more deserving group! You love watching suffering, well now you can enjoy it personally!

Sick sick people, monsters, they all deserve to die. Anyone who can sit there and take pleasure in the torture of an animal, does not deserve to be on this earth. I hope the bullfighter got what he deserves as well.

Live by the sword, die by the sword. Why do these people want to watch people stab a bull to death, anyway? And now some of them are sharing in the suffering themselves. They only got what they deserve.

AMEN!!!!! They all deserve it!!! I pray they all suffer a lifetime with all their injuries!!! It’s about time they all pay dearly!!!!!! I want to give a big YAY shout out to all my fellow activists who have been fighting for years to put a stop to this archaic practice! We didn’t win the battle YET but we sure did get a good laugh at this amazing instant Karma and we will eventually win the war!! Keep fighting, NEVER GIVE UP!!

I don’t give a good God damn for those bastards that were gathered to watch bulls being tormented and slaughtered – as far as I’m concerned, they got what they deserved. I’m only sorry more of them weren’t killed. Worthless human excrement.

Revenge of the bulls. You harm and take their life without even thinking about it. Welcome to their world.
