For some time I had talked about the barbaric tradition of “Toro Jubilo” in Spain.
Here is a nice, short article about it, taken from the internet:
Despite strong security measures (against animal rights activists), a team of the Spanish-Latin American animal welfare organization Anima Naturalis managed to bypass the barriers and the location of the event, the public celebration or the execution of “Toro.” Last weekend in the notorious Spanish Medinaceli (Soría) Jubilo “(Cheer bull, also known as” Toro Embolado “, Fireball Bull). Once again, it was possible to document one of the most barbarous and satanic cruelty to animals in Spain, which is celebrated as a folk amusement for primitive sadists of the extra class – and, of course, praised as a protected, traditional cultural asset.
For this purpose, a young bull is tied to a stake by about 20 helpers.
One then places on its horns a wooden frame with two cloths soaked in pitch of combustible liquid, which are shaped like spheres.
These are then lit, and the bull is left free by capping the head tie rope.
Everyone enjoys themselves deliciously, as the animal, who goes crazy with burning pain, runs off in panic. The horns and very often whole body parts (because of drip nodding) are burned.
Not infrequently, the bull commits suicide by racing against any obstacles or deliberately back against the binding post (documented last year).
In addition to some pitch-black, backward regions of Spain, find such fire bull amusements held just in Catalonia, where by means of referendum and against the wishes of the Spanish national government even the classic bullfighting (corrida de toros) has been abolished. Altogether more than 3,000 bulls are described each year in Spain as above, as fire or cheering bulls set on fire.
As usual, the Catholic Church has nothing against such cruelty to animals, after all, they usually even in honor of Christian “saints” instead. Animals are after the official church doctrines soulless creatures, which one can torment for human pleasure, also at will. As is well known, Pope Francis himself is a bullfighting fan and, in this regard, resistant to petition.

My comment: If ones inspires and enjoys how innocent and utterly defenseless animals suffer and are tortured to death, this one is no more than a miserable monster and has not earned something like his own human rights in any way. If torture, mistreatment and exploitation of innocent defenseless creatures is culture for Spain, why are the Spaniards no longer burning witches? This was sad culture in Spain too? Would be a good deal.
They hold a tradition that was proven by Jitanos and invented during the darkest period of our earth, namely in the time of the Inquisition. Bullfights and bullfights violate every ethic of modern civilized countries and societies.
