SAMPLE LETTER. This letter is prepared to inform you about the issue. Write a personal letter using these talking points.
===========================================================

Honorable Officials:

I am appalled the Toro Jubilo (Bull of Fire) still takes place in Medinaceli, Spain. This is the 21st Century, yet it is acceptable for street mobs to harass a released bull with balls of burning pitch attached to his horns. The balls are ablaze for hours, scorching the bull's horns, body and eyes. Some bulls try to end their agony by smashing into walls.

I cannot tour or otherwise support any society that ignores the senseless brutalization of animals. I will advise others to join me in a boycott of Spanish tourism and commerce until the Toro Jubilo and other blood fiestas are permanently banned.

Please amend Spanish law to cover animals sacrificed for amusement or religion. I urge you to enforce stronger animal protection laws that shield animals from all forms abuse, including vulgar rituals and blood fiestas. Anyone who victimizes animals should be prosecuted and punished.

While different cultures may not understand each other's customs, all rational humans comprehend cruelty. Setting fire to a live animal is clearly sadistic. It is time for all regions of Spain to subscribe to the ethical doctrines that shape our civilized world. Heritage, entertainment, art and religion never justify outright torture.

Sincerely,
