Bloodless Bullfight Exposed as Fraud, Charges To Be Filed - Why the Portuguese have banned it

Bullfighting - The Real Story

Bullfighting - The Real Story

A BLOODLESS BULLFIGHT put on as part of the Portuguese Festival in Artesia came to a halt Saturday when a humane officer found nails protruding from long sticks used to jab the beast, which has suffered puncture wounds, it was reported today.

A tipster prompted a humane officer with Acton-based Animal Cruelty Investigations to go to the bullfight, where he saw that a bull had been repeatedly jabbed by the sticks, the Daily News reported.

The sticks were decorated with ribbons and confetti, so that the public could not see the 3-inch nails at the tip, Jane Garrison of Animal Cruelty Investigations said.

"This was promoted as a bloodless bullfight," Garrison said. The document read " No bull in Artesia Harmed" . The officer, who wasn't identified, went into the center of the ring, held up his badge and shut down the bullfight, Garrison said.

Garrison, who said she expected charges to be filed Tuesday, told those who organized the bullfight were told that stabbing a bull was a violation of state law.

The non profit group is not affiliated with any law enforcement agency, though humane officers act on behalf of the state.

Laws have been put in place to end bullfights in Portuguese, watch the video and see what really goes on in the ring. Bloodless bullfights were supposed to be kinder, No bulls harmed, apparently these violators of the law felt they could hide their brutality. We congratulate the quick eye and thinking of those that ended this fight, Bullfights are very inhumane.
