El Toro de la Vega (Bull with Spears) - Tordesillas

This brutality occurs every September. Please this postcard to the authorities. Below you will find the email addresses.

The bull Rodanero was murdered in 14/9/04 in Tordesillas, Spain.

Thousands of bulls like Rodanero are brutally murdered in Spain either in bullfights or in popular fiestas.

You can make the difference, please send the the postcard below to the authorities of Tordesillas and also to the Catholic Church.

Don't forget that this slaughter is made in the name of a Saint. Please remember that in 2005 another bull wil be speared till death in this barbaric fiesta.

This campaign will continue until this blood-thirsty cruelty ends.

Toros de Fuego (Fire Bulls) - Medinaceli, Soria

Date 11th November

This particular savagery consists in putting a kind of ball of pitch on both the horns of the bulls and setting fire to the balls. The bulls are released on the streets. These balls burn for hours, burning the horns, body and eyes, causing terrible suffering.
Several times the bulls try to kill themselves against walls, due to the horrible pain.
