Toronto Humane Society Says NO WAY To Bullfighting At Event To Be Held This Weekend

The following open letter was sent yesterday to the members of Toronto City Council...

The Toronto Humane Society is distressed to learn of the intent of the Alliance of Portuguese Clubs & Associations of Ontario to host a bullfight at Downsview Park on June 15th and 16th.

Bullfights are nothing more than highly staged forms of animal cruelty. We understand that this particular event does not include the use of knives to directly injure the animals, however, it is clear the bulls will suffer unnecessary torment and the event will perpetuate the idea that injuring and killing animals for amusement is acceptable.

The Toronto Humane Society strongly urges you to take the necessary steps to ensure this deplorable event does not take place.
