Bullfights remain the same, La Macarena starts tomorrow

The 22nd La Macarena Bullfighting Festival kicks off tomorrow at 4:00 pm with Spaniards Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza and David Mora and Bogotá native, Ramsés, in the ring.

Santiago Tobón, the executive director of Cormacarena, the festival’s organizer, explained that the fights will have all three parts including the animal’s death, except in the case of a pardon.

Last year several local leaders, including Medellín’s Mayor, Anibal Gaviria, and 17 out of 21 councilmembers, campaigned to eliminate pain, suffering and death from bullfights but the effort didn’t make it very far and failed to bring about the changes they were asking for.

    Why don’t they end, once and for all, this sadistic spectacle? Spain that probably was the birth place of bull fighting is getting rid or it…why not Colombia? why are you fools so fond of seeing blood? didn’t you had enough with the blood shed by the killer Escoba?…Alberteacher from bilingual Guarne-Colombia thinks so. What about the rest of the world?
