In my days as a Catman I was obliged to attend bullfights in Oman.

They are very different to the Iberian version. An Omani bullfight is between two bulls. It lasts five minutes and the winner is the one who dominated the other. No blood is drawn and injuries are rare. If the fight starts to get really nasty the handlers disengage their bull and the fight is called off. It's actually quite a civilised game. It's a tremendous social occasion where one meets old friends and makes new ones.

The Spanish slaughter show is just horrible.

Apparently a trio of idiots have been gored today at the 'festival'.

I do hope the bull is unharmed.
One thing you can say for the French, when civilization falls they have less far to fall than everyone else.

Sadly, the bull is quite certainly dead.

A Thpanish bullfight uses six bulls. There are never, ever, any bovine survivors.

I greatly prefer the Omani way. Their bulls are treated with respect and even affection, win or lose. They are almost household pets.

In Ethpain, maltreatment of animals seems to be almost respectable.

The only Thpanish bullfight I ever saw was on telly in a bar in Algeciras. I cheered loudly when a matador got a horn up his arse and was tossed out of the ring like a rag doll.

Tourism is already down here because of the lifting of the hunting ban. Things like this will make things worse. Our government is so stupid.
