I once jumped in a bullfight ring to stop this, even if it was just for that one day. This barbaric event is not a sport and matadors are not heroic!! This needs to stop! 😡💔😢

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! IT IS TIME TO SEND A MESSAGE TO SPAIN THAT THIS CRUELTY WILL NO LONGER BE TOLERATED.
Bullfights are one of the most cruel customs and should be outlawed immediately.
There is no place to such abuse in a modern society.
Celebrating death must become our past, and only future we envision should be a celebration of life. ・・・
This weekend marks the end of nine days of the annual San Fermin festival in Pamplona, known around the world for its corridas (bullfights).
During the festival bull after bull is antagonized and receives deep wounds to prepare him for the final 'fight'. After the performance, the 'estoque', a slim sword, is thrust between the bull's shoulders and through his chest. A matador can easily miss his mark, causing overwhelming blood loss and a prolonged, agonising death.
If a Matadero performs well, he may be awarded an ear, which is cut off of the dead or dying bull. Infrequently, Matadors are awarded both ears for their efforts.
Once the bull is defeated, though not necessarily dead, he is dragged through the arena by his horns to the matadero - the slaughterhouse. For the bull, there is only ever one outcome.

Another successful day sending Sandy off to her furever home! ❤️🇺🇸🐶 #Repost@houndsandheroes with @get_repost
Sandy is off to her Navy family in Camp Pendleton and then to Utah. She will be getting training from our trainers as well as training in Utah. We are so excited for this sweet deaf pup’s new life! Wonderful teamwork with @istandwithmypack 🐶🇺🇸🐶 #A5169379
So sad to hear the passing of, Jerry Maren, he was the last surviving little person to appear as a munchkin “Lollipop Guild” in The Wizard of Oz. Some of you know my fav movie is the Wizard of Oz so I was elated when I was invited to their reception when they received their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Jerry even attended a Lakers game with me. He was 98 years old. 💚🍭😢
We did it! Thanks to all that cared about this angel! 🐶😇❤️ #Repost@houndsandheroes with @get_repost
Sandy has left the building, together with @istandwithmypack we pulled this sweet deaf girl today. She will be going through training and then hopefully going to a military family, that is interested in adopting her. A long but rewarding day! #A5169379 🐶❤️🐶
