Bloodless Bullfights


We have them here in California. Instead of stabbing bulls with things that have darts on the end, bullfighters in the San Joaquin Valley use velcro. More here and here. Interestingly tidbit: olé is derived from the word Allah.

I think they should give swords (or pistols) to the bulls.

I saw that movie "The Matador" a few weeks ago - it made me angry.

That's an idea I like. You can enjoy the "fight" without feeling guilty about the torturing of the bull.
