This short post is dedicated to a thorny Spanish cultural issue – Bull fighting.
I’ve always believed that part of visiting other counties is about appreciating the many varied parts of their culture and traditions.
However there are always some difficulties for me when it comes to certain elements of societies that celebrate the unnecessary suffering and pain of animals.
So I can’t reconcile myself to the Spanish tradition of bull fighting. Regardless of its revered history I find it abhorrent and cruel with no place in a modern society.
In case you feel this is anti-Spanish I am also anti fox hunting, badger baiting, cock fighting and horse racing. And I’m a lifetime long salad munching vegetarian… (so there!!!)
