What is the misinformation of frenzying bulls to run thru packed streets - this to me is animal abuse - if not to you.

there is no misinformation about that IMO

firecrackers? bulls being swat on their rears? in the running of the bulls? when? where? how? who?

The bulls run for 850 mts approx, for just around 3 minutes...I wouldn´t say this is torture.

BTW, it´s not the only running of the bulls in Spain...but the original and most known one.

I guess what animal abuse means is different to everyone and their personal morals.

in china you see videos of cats being boiled alive - ditto for dogs - the Chinese apparently think that that is not animal abuse

and who is to say, except from your own personal moral compass

From Kismet's post:

Do you means the Moors soul..I have found this interesting article about it..

Verbatim from Kismet's article:

Though bullfighting may happen all over the world, the home and heart of bullfighting is in Spain.

From this poster:

Not only do you have a reading comprehension problem but you also want to discredit bullfighhting by inserting the fact that can only considered as a form of prejudice by raising the issue that it was once a Moorish practice.

That was over 500 yeats ago and the only relevance is emotion that prejudice against Muslims may evoke and your article omitted the fact that Christians engaged in the same activities at the time.
