Default To Homerhomer: Bullfights

These days I literally won't kill a black widow spider [I'll move it and its egg case to some less "dangerous" spot]. Still, at one time, thanks mostly to Hemingway, the "sport" of bullfighting was scene more as an art. In the 40s and 50s maybe it was something more in the spirit of the times, but much has changed. The bull doesn't stand a chance. They weaken its shoulder muscles with those "spears". Anyway, I would say bullfighting's days are numbered and I suppose some bullfighters do get killed but usually it's a one-sided affair. Still, what happens to cows headed for McDonalds isn't much better. Still, it takes balls to be a bull fighter and some are quite graceful with the cape.

I agree that the animals for consumption aren't treated any better, I would even say that most likely the bulls used for fighting may have had a decent life unlike the once produced for consumption. The difference is that we, just like any other animals need to eat, and to eat other animals are killed, that's the nature of the beast, we however are the only once (ok there maybe exceptions in out there) that get entertainment out of killing animals, and that's what I, and many others find disguisting.
