The movement to ban bullfighting got another win last week. From the League Against Cruel Sports: “The Venezuelan Supreme Court has taken the decision to annul the Ordinance on Bullfights (1988) in the capital city Caracas, making it the first area of the country to effectively introduce a ban on bullfighting. This is a huge step forward as we push for a complete ban on bullfighting across Venezuela.
“The Ordinance on Bullfights contradicts a newer regulation which states that Venezuela is required to protect all living species. As anyone who has ever seen a bullfight will know, la corrida involves a huge amount of suffering not only to bulls but to horses as well. All of this cruelty can only serve to have a negative impact on society. “
