Catalonia Voters Ban Bullfighting

The worldwide status of animals just took another step forward.

Voters in Catalonia, Spain, have banned bullfighting from the region. In its coverage of this ban, Time magazine calls bullfighting a:

… centuries-old sport (or art, depending on your perspective)…

Those are actually comparable perspectives. The majority perspective—the one shared by the people who passed this ban—is that bullfighting is a barbarism.

I expect bullfighting to eventually be outlawed throughout Spain, and this week’s vote in Catalonia establishes key precedent. Link.
