It was mentioned on the News (which I rarely see these days) tonight; they make such a big friggin' deal out of, like it's such a great thing. Every person injured or killed in this sick event is getting what they deserve.

Call them or write a letter. People do this all the time for other reasons -- many of which I often find annoying -- why shouldn't we do the same?

I spent 3 months in Pamplona, living right smack dab in the middle of the route that the bulls take during the run. Everyone was like, "Oh, it's too bad you won't be here to see it." Nah.

It seems that when a city has been sponsoring an event for an extended time it sees itself as being morally exempt from the act on the basis of its longevity.

This was the first year in recent times in which New Orleans decided to measure "the success" of Mardi Gras in ways other than, literally, tons of trash collected. I suppose that all things can change if the Big Easy can get around to doing anything, ha!

from CNN

"On Saturday, a dozen or so activists from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals tried to stage a nude protest run along the route carrying placards with slogans in different languages that read, "Stop the Bloody Bullfight."

Police prevented them from carrying out the protest. "

-------------------------

Ironic how police and people are up in arms and outraged over naked humans running , yet they don't mind making an animal do something which it doesn't want to do which can result in injury.

Then later kill the animals with knives and swords.

What a F#&%ed up bunch

I saw quick news coverage of the running and I was mortified. The bulls are forced to run on pavement which is VERY slippery for them. The bulls kept falling down and it didn't look pleasant. I saw one fall and it didn't get up before the coverage was over. It was disturbing. Does anyone know if any bulls ever get hurt or killed?

I believe the Bulls always end up as steak after the event; any not killed during the run are killed after they arrive at their destination.
