FRENCH animal rights campaigners are getting closer to seeing a bullfighting ban in France.bullfight

Although still legal, the sport has now been removed from the national cultural heritage list.

‘La corrida’ was only recently added to France’s intangible heritage list alongside culinary delight tarte tatin in 2011.

However France’s Spanish-born prime minister Manuel Valls is a fan, saying ‘it’s a culture we have to preserve’.

Bullfighting still happens in southern towns of Nimes and Beziers where long-standing tradition exists.
