Weekly Activities/ Day 2/ Activity 2
Activity 2: One of the most popular activities in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, is called ‘Bullfighting.’ It has been a part of Spanish culture for centuries. In bullfighting people called ‘toreros and ‘matadors’ fight with a live bull. The toreros do most of the fighting and, ultimately, capture the bull and tie it up. Once it has been caught, the matador joins the fight and kills the bull. Although most toreros and matadors are men, there are some women who also compete in the sport.
Not everyone supports bullfighting in Spain. In fact, about 30% of the population want it to be banned (stopped) completely. What do you think? On your blog tell us whether or not you think that bullfighting should be banned in Spain. Please provide, at least, two reasons to support your decision.
Answer: Yes, bullfighting should be banned in Spain
Reason 1: My first reason is because animals weren't made to be killed or captured. There are reasons why we need animals.
Reason 2: My second reason is because some people get injured and hurt. People do these kind of things for money or just to impress the audience.
Reason 3: My last reason is because it's cruel to an animal that has never harmed anyone and I think this is animal abuse.
