Great news for all animal lovers as we have heard that the cruel tradition of bull spearing was banned in the regional district of Castile and León putting an end to the excessive killing of innocent bulls at the annual Toro de la Vega festival.

While the 1 on 1 bullfight was not affected by the ban, the spearing activity limits the number of bulls killed. The centries old event consists of riders holding spears and chasing down a bull released onto the street at the annual Toro de la Vega festival in Tordesillas.

This ban is the fruit of years of work by animal lovers and animal activists locally and abroad.

Please share this wonderful news to encourage fellow advocates that we can make a difference if we fight on and don’t give up on what we believe in.
