INFORMATION

A Humane Officer with Animal Cruelty Investigations (ACI), interrupted a bull fight Saturday night at the Festa da Bola in Artesia, CA when he discovered the bull fighters were using long wooden sticks with several inch sharpened nails on the end to stab, torment and infuriate the bulls. The Humane Officer noticed the bulls were being stabbed when he saw blood and puncture wounds on the bull when the animal was being returned to the trailer from the ring. The bull had been repeatedly stabbed with up to 8 sticks.

The Humane Officer went into center ring, held up his badge and put an end to the fight. Over 30 sticks with nails on the end were confiscated and the company operating the bull fight was informed that stabbing a bull is a violation of California's state animal cruelty laws.

Jane Garrison, spokesperson for Animal Cruelty Investigations, stated, "Animal Cruelty Investigations is anorganization that enforces animal cruelty laws and stabbing a bull with sharpened nails is certainly a violation of the law. No animal should ever be made to suffer for so called entertainment. We hope the DA prosecutes this case to the fullest extent of the law and the City of Artesia makes this bull fight its last."
