Bullfighting banned in Spain As bull named ‘Nigerian’, ‘Feminist’ killed

The century-old bullfighting festival in Gijón, northern Spain, was called off on Thursday.

The popular event was cancelled after the city accused bull breeders and organisers of “crossing various lines.”

According to The Guardian UK, two of the bulls killed this week were named “” and “.”

“The bullfighting festival is over,” Ana González, the city’s socialist mayor, told reporters.

“They’ve crossed a lot of lines… These kinds of things cannot happen in a city that believes in gender equality, integration, and open doors for everyone.”

The Socialist Party decided at its most recent congress to abolish the 133-year-old Begoa bullfighting festival, citing growing public opposition.

Bullfighting was being “used to display an ideology contrary to human rights,” according to González.

According to González, the city will lose €50,000 (£43,000) in annual revenue.

Bullfighting supporters, on the other hand, argue that the controversy stems from a misunderstanding of how bulls are named.

The names were linked to regulations set out by Spain’s ministry of agriculture by the Unión de Criadores de Toros de Lidia, which represents 345 fighting bull breeders.

The organisation said in a statement that names were given to make tracing bulls easier, and that bulls are given the names of their mothers as part of the protocol.

The bulls killed over the weekend were “descended from the cows ‘’ and ‘,'” according to the statement.
