FRANCE LEGALIZES BULLFIGHT


French Constitutional Council has just upheld the Gallic right to bullfight, like the Spanish do.

Brigitte Bardot demanded a ban.

MÉDICO CIRURGIÃO DE ESTREMOZ QUEBRA AS REGRAS DEONTOLÓGICAS E INCITA À VIOLÊNCIA FÍSICA CONTRA OS ANTI-TOURADAS

Article in : arcodealmedina.blogs.sapo.pt/162766.html

“Dear Antonio Pecas,


I appreciate your caring for Nuno Mata, victim of a bullfight. Of course you will never want this to happen again. As you showed your compassion for Nuno Mata, you are one of us, the people who mourn the victims of bullfights and want to stop it!


A well informed person like you knows that bullfights produce a steady and predictable stream of suffering victims: always the bulls and horses and incidentally - for a change – a man. You also know that people do as they please so we focus on the suffering of the unvoluntary victims, the bulls and horses.

 
As “Nomen est omen”, I surmise that Nuno Mata loved the killing essence of bullfights, choosing for the risk in participating. I hope you understand that I do not mourn victims of their own voluntary participation in the suffering of the animals involved.


With this Nuno Mata incident I expected you, as doctor sworn by the Hippocratic oath to keep your patients from harm and injustice, to see the light, to join our ranks and abolish the bullfights.


But now I learned that you are not pleased with our efforts to stop the bullfights. Why? I don't see the logic. Please explain why you want to continue the bloodshed and the sorry fates of more Nuno Mata's. “

NO MORE BULLFIGHTS in SPAIN
in Donostia - San Sebastian

21.08.12 *** The mayor of the Basque city of Donostia - San Sebastian, Juan Karlos Izagirre, has announced that from 2013 no more bullfights will take place in his city.

He is not going to continue to hire out the arena of the city for bullfights.

In a press conference the local authorities have indicated that they are in 100% agreement with the arguments of the anti-bullfighting movement because "the suffering of an animal should not be a public spectacle".

From an economic standpoint Izagirre states that "a facility as Illumbe (the name of the bullring) cannot be maintained with public money in order to facilitate seven bullfights per year". He sees opportunities for the arena to be used for the organization of sports activities and events that do make a profit.

Additionally, bullfights that recently took place during the local festivities of San Sebastian, called Semana Grande (August 11 to 18), made less income and received less visitors than expected. Two thirds of the seats in the arena remained empty during the fighting.

CAS International is very pleased with the decision the local government of Donostia - San Sebastian has taken. We hope that more Spanish mayors will follow the example of Izagirre to not only ban cruel bullfighting, but also condemn it openly! Namely, in Spain it is a remarkable thing that politicians publicly take a stand against

BRAVO LA CATTURA NEAR ROME CANCELLED
Message by Patrizia Mocchi Veg :

Another victory in Italy.
A yearly event that was going to take place tomorrow in a city near Rome called La Cattura, where calves are released in an area where morons chase them until they capture them, similar to rodeos - was canceled under the pressure of the P.A.E. (European animal rights party).

USOC: Please Don't Allow Our Olympians
To Glorify Trophy Hunting

USOC: Please Don't Allow Our Olympians To Glorify Trophy Hunting petition/usoc-please-don-t-allow-our-olympians-to-glorify-trophyhunting
A role model refers to any "person who serves as an example, whose behavior is emulated by others”.

Olympic athletes are obvious role models and their conduct is important. Sometimes poor conduct is a one time misstep which we all do, but it can also be in how one lives their life.

Although they deserve a lot of credit for their Olympic and other shooting records, this petition is in regards to the trophy hunting and training practices of our Olympic Shooting Team.

Glorifying the killing of so many beautiful animals is something to be taken very seriously. When these animals are so easily destroyed with little respect given to their lives, our future generations will give little respect to those animals who are left. Taking trophy photos with your recent kill demoralizes our humanity. What message does it send to the youth of our world? Do we want them to believe that murdering animals in the name of sport is okay? How do we teach them to respect our world and all species in it if we also turn a blind eye to hunters who pose with a big grin next to the fallen animal?

Corey Cogdell, Kim Rhode and other team members have killed many large trophy animals like the threatened Alaskan Brown Bear. The main threats to brown bear are loss of habitat and hunters.

Hartmann's Mountain Zebras which are an ("endangered" species according to CITES and "vulnerable" according to IUCN)  in Namibia. The main threats to the species are from loss of habitat to agriculture, hunting and persecution. Mountain zebras are becoming extinct because they are being hunted for their skins.

And the list goes on to include: Springbok, Black wildebeest, Blue wildebeest, Greater Kudu, Blesbok, Red Hartebeest, Impala, a large number of pheasants, doves, deer, elk, moose, caribou, canadian geese and others.

Granted, some of these animals are used as food but others are only for the sake of the kill. Trophy hunting is a game to hunters, certain animals are more highly prized over others and worthy of a death photo. It's all about the ego.

We demand that our Olympic shooting athletes be held to the high moral standard that is expected of them. They have a great platform in which to educate the youth of our country about animal conservation and animal rights. This platform should not be used to encourage trophy killings of the beautiful beings that we share our planet with.

We believe that true Olympism includes ethical behavior in regards to all life and that the Olympic spirit is tarnished with the blood of these animals who are killed in the name of sport.

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated…I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by [people] from the cruelty of [human kind]”—Mahatma Gandhi
