Banning all forms of bullfighting in the world does not go far enough, as this will only protect one species in a few countries. Legislators should in fact go further and ban all forms of animal exploitation; they are all forms of animal abuse and are equally as negative.
Animals are not merely suffering in bullfights and other animals sports, but beaten, whipped, injured, restrained, stressed and sometimes made to kill each other in addition to all other forms of cruelty. Sports such as horse racing, dog racing, animal fighting, hunting, fishing and even training and breeding all cause distress and harm to animals and should be banned.
However animals in sports is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to animals cruelty, and other forms of animal exploitation need to be addressed also, as exotic animal circuses, the leather, wool and clothing industries, and animal testing all cause an unthinkable amount of damage to the animals involved and often constitute torture of the animals in question. But the worst and largest animal abuse infrastructure exists in industrial animal farming, as it takes this suffering and spreads it animals on an industrial scale, where beak trimming, force feeding, branding, mutilating, restraining, castrating, removing body parts and ultimately slaughter are the norm.
It is time to change culture globally to be more understanding, this is already underway for many issues, we wouldn’t have human rights, democracy, or gay marriage if it weren’t for people choosing to be bold and change the status quo. The same should be applied to animal welfare.
