There are too many brutal kinds of sports in the world, but the Bullfight belongs to the cruellest one at all. In the cruel fighting, not only people get wounded and even killed, but also the poor beasts are regularly killed brutally and bloodily.
Bullfight originates from Spanish ancient religious ritual, a beast was killed to offer a sacrifice to God. The real bullfighting began in the mid-18th century. At the very beginning it was only a sport item which was to show courage of Spanish aristocracy. In 1743, the first bullfighting arena was built, since then, more and more bullfighting arenas appeared in whole Spain one after another, thus bullfighting became a folk bullfighting performance. Each year, the bullfighting festival takes place between March and November. At that time, fans all over the world come in swarms to Spain in order to watch the crazy bullfight for incentive seeking.
The bull is a purebred wild animal coming from North Africa. It is bred and domesticated by special Farms. Normally when it is 4 or 5 years old, it will be used for fighting. Each bull weighs more than 400kgs. To a bullfighter, he could be hurt, even killed under bulls’ hoofs or horns, if he made any slight mistakes. According to a statistics that more than 20 people were killed and a large number of people were injured in the past.
Alike, a poor bull is born to be a sacrifice of entertainment. On the fighting arena, the bull is lively assassinated on its back with sorrows one after another by “valiant bullfighters”, immediately, blood is flowing out of its back and dropping on the earth, its whole body is covered by its own blood. The “performance” is still continuing and maniacs are jumping screamingly for joy; the bull is suffering badly from fighting and struggling for life from the jaws of death until it is exhausted, drops the last blood, despairingly falls under the feet of the bullfighter……
This is the fighting between human and beast, it is also the miserable stake. It is full of blood and ruthless from the beginning to the end. The price is extremely high like Hemingway said: either human wins the beast, or the beast kills human.
It is said that bullfight is Spanish “quintessence”. Spanish people have ever said proudly: “As long as Spanish nation exists, bullfight will never disappear.” To them, bullfight shows the valiantness, it is also the signification of power and charm. People always ask themselves: can men’s valiantness be shown only in this way of slaughter? Must a beast be slaughtered for a sacrifice and meaningless price?
Yearly, monthly, hourly even secondly, how many poor beasts must be experiencing birth, domesticating, fighting, being assassinated, wounded, bleeding, struggling and death? These beasts would never understand why their fate is so miserable like that. Why their fate is so bloody and cruel? What is brought from their death?
If the beasts could foresee their miserable future when they are not born, undoubtedly, they would rather die before born to demonstrate!
When is the ending of bullfight?
