Animal cruelty is an act of grave sin and must be condoned by all corners of the world. The beautiful country of Spain of late has conjured up a lot of negativity in its name, with several viral videos showing the brutality and cruelty bulls face in their country.

Bullfighting as a sport holds great historical and cultural significance in Spanish culture. It is a practice passed down from medieval times and continues largely even today.

A user on Twitter (now X) by the name ‘Figen’ uploaded a video that showed the horrible treatment of bulls in Spain and how people relished their suffering. The video was originally shared by ‘PACMA’ a local group that defends the rights of animals, the environment, and people. It showed a bull, with its horns blazing with fire and a rope tied around its neck.

The poor bull rushed towards a tree on the side and stopped in its tracks, in hopes of dousing the fire. It looked in agonizing pain as it frantically paced across the street, with loud cheers and screams of people in the background.

A couple of men sprung up from behind and pulled the poor bull by its tail and forced it to move ahead. They pulled the ropes around its neck and horns and led onto a path that was filled with hundreds of people, as they watched the cruelty unfold.
