Bullfighting: Art Form or Cruelty?
Bullfighting is an important part of Spanish culture and history, but many people are divided on whether it should continue to be allowed, or if it should be banned. It wasn't until I moved to Spain and learned more about bullfighting that I realized the goal of every bullfight is to actually kill the bull! It's not like I was living under a rock before I got here, but somehow that little fact evaded me until only about a year ago... I have visited several bullrings, and have watched bullfights on television which are shown live throughout the region, though I have not attended a bullfight in person. Here is an article by Damian Corrigan who writes on Spain for About.com. What do you think about bullfighting? Do you plan to attend a bullfight while you are here?
