Cruel Festival Event Has Bulls Chased, Tormented, And Then Brutally Stabbed – Take Action!

Published: June 14, 2022 at 04:58 PM Author: Penny Eims

Pamplona, Spain – Each July, thrill-seekers hoping to check a box from their bucket list travel to the San Fermín festival in Pamplona, Spain, to witness or participate in the “Running of the Bulls” event.

While a small segment of society may see the Running of the Bulls as exciting, the vast majority see it for what it is – a violent spectacle that culminates in the brutal killing of the bulls in a ring after the chaotic street “race” concludes.

Every aspect of this annual event is inhumane. During the run, the terrified bulls often slip, fall, and crash into walls and barriers – suffering injuries that will never be tended to, while surrounded by a loud mob of uncaring participants and spectators.

The website for the bull run clearly outlines what happens to these exploited animals, as well as to some of the human participants:

Barriers and fences are placed to corral the bulls along the city center streets to the bullring, where they will later face their demise. Since 1910, 16 people have died while participating in the bull runs, the majority from being gored.

Please add your name to the petition today. We will be forwarding your signatures and comments to the Mayor of Pamplona, Enrique Maya, along with our demand for an end to this torturous event. Additionally, please SHARE this petition to raise awareness about the cruelty behind the Running of the Bulls event and the subsequent bullfights that are inherently torturous and cruel.

Attention Mayor Enrique Maya:

We the undersigned demand that the Running of the Bulls and bullfight events at the San Fermín festival be terminated. The majority of people in Spain are against bullfighting and in many countries, these abhorrent and exploitive spectacles have been banned. We urge you to be a true leader and bring an end to these disdainful events that have fallen from favor around the world.
