..... is still so popular and loved by public?
When I was in Madrid, I saw matador's training. There were children less, than 10 years old among them. Children, who were professionally tought to kill innocent animals just to entertain public.
In my opinion, it's not fights, but cruel killings. There is almost no chance to survive. Bulls are simply doomed to die. Slowly and painfully.
Why do so many feel respect to torreros? Doesn't that mean, we are as cruel as they are?
Do you feel sorrow towards bullfighters, who got hurt? I personally experience mixed feelings.
