Weekly Activities/ Day 2/ Activity 2

Activity 2
Not everyone supports bullfighting in Spain. In fact, about 30% of the population want it to be banned (stopped) completely. What do you think? On your blog tell us whether or not you think that bullfighting should be banned in Spain. Please provide, at least, two reasons to support your decision.

  1. Firstly I prefer that bullfighting in Spain should stop at once because sometimes the sport of bullfighting does not go right at some stage, etc.  The bull might stab its horn at the man.

  1. Secondly It is tremendously frightful to watch Bullfighting in real life.  I mean......there has to be a law that children are not allowed to watch bull fighting…. is there?


  1. Hi Von,

    You have raised a number of very good points about bullfighting. I personally agree that bullfighting should be banned or disallowed because it is a terribly frightful sport. It's also very dangerous, both for the bull and for the matador (bullfighter). Interestingly, my son (Aronui) is just watching a quiet DVD beside me while I blog and he chose to watch 'The Book of Life.' In the last few minutes of the DVD they actually had a bullfighting scene and it scared him so much that we asked me to turn the TV off. It really is very scary for children (even in cartoon form).

    I will check and see if there is a law regarding children watching bullfighting. As far as I know it is not illegal but, like you, I think that there should be!

    This is a lovely example of a really thoughtful and thought provoking blog post. Keep up the great work!


  2. Hi Von,

    I think your reasons about why bull fighting should stop are really good and I definitely agree with you.

    Keep up the fantastic work!

  3. Haii Von!
    I loved your reasons why you should ban the bullfighting! I recommend to ban the bullfighting too! Great Job Von keep it up!

  4. Hey Von,
    I just wanted to say that your progress is good and you are good at these things and that I like your reasons!.

    :) :) :) :) :)

  5. Hello Von
    What a awesome job on this activity! I think that bullfighting should be banned. It is very dangerous. Well done.

  6. Hi Von,

    Thank you for sharing your opinion about bullfighting, I enjoyed reading both of your reasons about why you think it should be stopped.

    I have to say, I completely agree with you. I think bullfighting as a sport is extremely cruel and dangerous to both the matadors and the bulls. Not only is it very risky for the matador (bull fighter), but the bulls are treated very badly before and during the fight in order to make it easier for the matador.

    I like how you have though about who might be watching it too. Good thinking! Although some people in Spain enjoy watching it, I imagine it would be very frightening for younger children - especially if something went wrong!

    Great work Von :-)
