Bloodless Bullfights No Longer Interest Me

I used to support the bloodless bullfights held in California. These bullfights are allowed because they are part of religious festivals in the Portuguese-American community. But within the last year, an animal cruelty investigation almost shut one down because spikes were being used to antagonize the bull. This was a clear violation of animal law.

We are in Gustine and we were invited to the spectacle being held tonight. I said no. Next time, though, I might want to hook up with an animal rights group to protest.

They are just stupid and really have nothing to do with religion. Anyway, here is an article that describes the practice and provides some background on the Portuguese-Americans in California.
