Bulls of Catalonia, Rejoice!

That's right all you big, hunky, masculine bulls, Catalonia, Spain has just banned bullfighting! Now, some see this as a purely political gesture to try to distance themselves from Spain (they want to be an independent state), but I, and many other animal-lovers, see this as a victory against blatant animal cruelty. No more killing of bulls disguised as "sport" - how sweet it is.
Here's one news article about it: http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Europe/2010/0728/Catalonia-votes-for-less-death-in-the-afternoon-with-bullfighting-ban
Let's have a big, happy MOO for that!

Moooo! Some may argue that tradition should be immutable, but a tradition that incorporates animal baiting is better off retired.

I agree - it wouldn't be so bad if they could do it humanely - not using spears to pierce the bull's withers, for example - but it is still a cruel day for the bull to be taunted to extreme anger and stress.
