Should Bullfighting be Banned?
Professional and non-professional bullfighters suffer
and sometimes even death.
The total number of casualties in 2015, one of the
highest in years
. And since 2000,
have died in bullfighting incidents.
In 2013, there were at least
47 injuries in 661 bullfights
. This amounts to an injury in 7% of the fights.
In any reasonable sport, death should not occur except in the rarest of circumstances. Bullfighting makes the news every year for people having died by goring, trampling or some other gruesome means.
Bullfighting carries a considerable risk of
serious, life-threatening injuries
In July 2016, the bullfighter Victor Barrios was the first to
in the ring since 1985. Therefore, the practice went 31 years without a single dead professional bullfighter in Spain.
