Spanish region set to ban bullfighting

Bullfighting looks set to be banned in part of Spain as the Catalan parliament prepares to vote tomorrow to prohibit one of the country's most emblematic, and bloodiest, traditions.

The Catalan parliament prepares to vote on law giving fighting bulls the same level of protection from cruelty as other animals.

Manuel Cases, of the Catalan Animals Rights Association said "Everywhere in Spain the majority of people say they do not like bullfights," he went on to say "Over time, this will have to be prohibited. Otherwise we will be back in the stone age."

The sooner this barbaric act of 'Bull Baiting' is banned the better.
