Los Angeles Times Calls for an End to Bullfighting

Editorial board of the publication asks, "Now can we stop bullfights?"

A recent feature by the editorial board at Los Angeles Times called for an end to bullfighting that was prompted by the recent deaths of Spanish bullfighters. Last week, Lorenzo the bull killed matador Victor Barrio, and shortly thereafter, the bull's mother was killed in an attempt to “stop the ‘bad lineage'” (according to the Times). While the board acknowledged that the human deaths were unfortunate, the paper also pointed out that “it shouldn’t require such grisly deaths for people to realize that bullfighting is a brutal and anachronistic sport—dangerous for the people who participate and grossly inhumane to bulls.” The piece cited the 250,000 bulls that Humane Society International estimates are killed each year in bullfights.“This is no cultural legacy for Spain or Mexico or any other country to pride itself on,” calling for “an end to these horrific rituals,” the paper said.
