The problem

  • Surrounded by a watching crowd, men armed with spears, swords and daggers attack a terrified bull, weakening it by causing intense pain and blood loss.
  • At the end of the fight, the bull is killed.

The solution

  • A worldwide ban on bullfighting.

What we're doing

  • We are working to ensure that those who are trying to protect bullfighting are unsuccessful.

Help us to fight animal cruelty around the world

It is thought that around 250,000 bulls are killed in bullfights and festivals every year.

World Animal Protection believes this violent form of animal abuse should be banned worldwide: culture is no excuse for cruelty.

You can help by recording and reporting animal cruelty that you see when travelling.
