URGENT: Bulls Tortured With Fire in Sadistic Spanish Festival

Every year in November, the city of Soria, Spain, holds a festival called Toro Jubilo, during which balls of flammable tar (or pitch) are attached to the horns of bulls and then set on fire. The terrified animals, either tied to stakes in public squares or released to run madly through the streets, burn in agony for hours, the blazing tar scorching their faces and bodies. Many frantic bulls reportedly crash into walls in blind terror! Their carcasses are later consumed by participants, who believe that the flesh of the tortured animals provides fertility and invincibility. You can learn more about this horrifying ritual by clicking here.

Please politely urge Soria officials to ban Toro Jubilo! Remind them that this sadistic, archaic event has no place in today’s society, and let them know that you and everyone you know will boycott travel to Soria until this cruelty is ended. And please, forward this alert far and wide!

Toro jubilo,
Pain and fire,
Inspires in the
Compassionate

A world of ire.
Please consider this
Torment part of
Past history,
And continue no more
Of
This misery.

      It is very sad. 😦 There are some good people there, though, but unfortunately not enough yet. Thanks, Joyce.

    MOST OF THE TIME CRUELTY IS DONE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. THIS UNBELIEVABLE DISTURBING CRUELTY TO BULLS IS DONE IN A CELEBRATORY WAY.! THIS IS EXTREMELY DISTURBING MORE SO THAT IT IS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN. CHILDREN MUST NOT BE ABLE TO THINK THIS IS RIGHT, MY GOD WHAT FUTURE IS THERE FOR THIS WORLD AND THE ANIMALS.

      I agree, and that they can do this in front of children is unforgivable. 😦
