Span­ish is­lands ap­prove blood­less bull­fights

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Law­mak­ers in Spain’s Balearic Is­lands have banned spec­ta­tors un­der age 18, al­co­hol and the killing or harm­ing of an­i­mals at re­gional bull­fights. A ma­jor­ity of left-wing deputies in the re­gional par­lia­ment passed a “Balearic-style bull­fight­ing” bill on Mon­day. The law also re­quires an­tidop­ing tests for both mata­dors and bulls and lim­its the time each bull spends in the ring to 10 min­utes. Con­ser­va­tive deputies who op­posed the law said pro­mot­ers will find it vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble to hold bull­fights un­der the new restric­tions.
