Protest against bullfighting in Madrid, Spain
CAS International and AnimaNaturalis protested against bullfighting in the Spanish capital Madrid on May 9. After a period of 18 months without bullfights, the bloody spectacles returned to the city. On May 2, the first bullfight was held since the outbreak of COVID-19. And then the bullfighting season started with 11 more bullfights, during which 66 bulls were killed. Simply outrageous!
Motion passed to end European subsidies for bullfighting
In April, Leonie Vestering (Party for the Animals), member of the Lower House of Dutch parliament, submitted a motion against European subsidies for the breeding of bulls for bullfights. The motion was adopted with 142 votes. With this motion, Dutch Minister Schouten of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality was asked to make an effort to achieve the end of these European subsidies.
Menta: the face of the Spanish galgo
Hunters dump, abuse and kill more than 50,000 galgos annually in Spain. When the greyhounds are lucky they are brought to shelters where they are lovingly cared for. Many galgos will never have this luck: some galgueros (hunters) leave their dogs in wells, hang them from trees, bring them to killing stations or dump them somewhere where they are left to their fate. Besides the hare hunt with galgos there is another activity that causes a lot of animal suffering: the championships.
