Young bulls are tortured to death by children in the Spanish arena – before the animals' ears are cut off while they are dying so that young people can proudly hold up their animal trophies
- WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT
- Young bulls were tortured to death by trainees in training in Cordoba, Spain
- Footage shows the ears of animals being cut off and given to children as a trophy
- The student's bullfighter turned out to be wounded, his face caked with blood
- Campaigners claim that calves were in more pain because students were inexperienced
The horrific images of bulls under two years of age tortured to death by children in Spain have been described as & # 39; unsuitable for a civilized country & # 39 ;.
The excessive scenes were filmed yesterday in a bullring in Cordoba, where students of bullfighters – some apparently minors – were invited to excite the helpless calves for entertainment.
The video & # 39; s shows that the ears of one of the dying animals have been cut off and presented as a trophy to a child soldier, while another boy has received the animal's tail.
The footage also revealed a student's bullfighter – apparently a teenager – who appeared to be wounded, with his face caked with blood as he attacks.
A young bullfighter was seen in the images with flood over his face as he launched a bull in Cordoba
As soon as the dying bull's ears and tail were chopped, child matadors paraded their trophies around the ring
An adult cut off the ear and tail and then placed them on the bull before giving them to the children to take as a trophy
According to campaigners from Animal Guardians and La Tortura No Es Cultura (torture is not a culture), the outrage is repeated annually in a so-called tribute to women from Cordoba.
& # 39; Every year they do this veal fighting and they say they do it as a tribute to Cordovan women & # 39 ;, said Marta Esteban of Animal Guardians.
& # 39; Very few people are present, around 2,000 in an arena with 17,000 places.
& # 39; They also do it to encourage students to learn bullfighting at various bullfighting schools in Andalusia. & # 39;
She continued: & # 39; The ear and / or tail of the animals are presented to the bullfighters if they perform well and then become as a & # 39; gift & # 39; given to the public.
& # 39; As you can see in the video, one of the animals is still alive when the ear is cut off. The other ear moves while they do that.
& # 39; We cannot know the exact age of the bullfighting students involved. Some look under the age of 18. They can kill animals from the age of 14.
Children were seen holding the recently severed bull's ears after the animal was maimed while it died in the ring
The two children paraded around the ring in Cordoba, Andalusia, with the bull's tail cut apart and the hacked ear
& # 39; So those are the ones who actually torture and act in the bullfight.
& # 39; Then there are spectators of all ages and those invited to the arena in their typical Cordovan costumes to pick up their ears. & # 39;
She added: “This free violence against noble and innocent beings is carried out by young people, some probably under 18, and in the presence of minors. This is unsuitable for a civilized country.
& # 39; We demand that politicians take immediate action so that these types of events no longer take place in our country, and children and adolescents are protected from this violence. & # 39;
Campaigners claim that the pain of these calves would probably have been worse than that of other bullfights, due to the inexperience of the students.
Student bullfighters, some apparently minors, were invited to skewer the helpless calves for the entertainment of the crowd
It may mean that the animals do not get successful punches that ruin their internal organs without killing them, causing them to suffer longer.
Now they are calling on women to flood municipalities in Cordoba with complaints and to let them know that the horrible spectacle is not in their name.
They also ask women to use the hashtag #NoQuieroTuHomenaje (I don't want a tribute) on social media.
Carmen Ibarlucea, president of La Tortura No Es Cultura, said: “Performing such an act of violence and torture against young bulls in honor of women is an insult.
& # 39; The woman is naturally protective and compassionate, not a lover of sadism and indifference to the suffering of others.
& # 39; If you want to pay tribute to women, ban these shows throughout Spain and build a society where culture is free from violence. & # 39;
