BULLFIGHTING _ 0261

Bullfighting also known as tauromachia or tauromachy (Spanish: tauromaquia About this sound listen (help·info), Portuguese: tauromaquia; from Greek: ταυρομαχία “bull-fight”), is a traditional spectacle of Spain, Portugal, southern France and some Hispanic American countries (Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and Peru)[2] and the Philippines, in which one or more bulls are baited, and then killed in a bullring for the entertainment of the audience. Although a blood sport, by definition, some followers of the spectacle prefer to view it as a ‘fine art’ and not a sport, as there are no elements of competition in the proceedings. In Portugal, it is illegal to kill a bull in the arena, so it is removed and either professionally killed or treated and released into its owners’ (ganadero) fields.
