City Bans Cruel Bull Running Event In Peru

Ayacucho, Peru – Animal welfare advocates are celebrating an announcement made on October 25. According to Animal Defenders International (ADI), officials in Ayacucho have banned a controversial bull run event.

ADI said:

Yesterday the Ministry of Culture declared that the Jala Toro, Pascua Toro and Velay Toro, are excluded from the Easter festivities, and that if they take place in the Huamanga Province, they will lose their status under the Cultural Heritage of the Nation.

The event involved the cruel mistreatment of animals and frequent injuries to people who crowded the streets as the bulls ran freely through the town. On more than one occasion, the traditional event was canceled because of these issues.

Animal welfare activists continue their fight to bring an end to these cruel events worldwide.

  2. I did not know of this either but I am thrilled it will happen no more. It is cruel, barbaric, and what the heck does it have to do with Easter anyway? One can not blame that bull. It is a horrible thing to do to them.

  4. Didn’t know that Peru had a running of the bulls. Sure am so pleased that it is now banned just wished Spain would also ban it. If I’m not mistaken I think the UK government actually supports Spain.

YAY — GOOD NEWS — FINALLY, to see the LIGHT and KNOW the horror, the cruel abuse & killings of Bulls MUST NEVER continue — we should protect, respect and care for Bulls — NOT sadistically torment them — we all belong to God — for those Abusers who disagree, they need to be arrested and sent for rehab in Rubber Rooms
