WARNING: Video contains graphic and disturbing images
CHILDREN as young as 14 have been filmed killing bulls in Madrid.
The shocking footage shows schoolboys covered with blood thrusting swords into bulls in front of cheering classmates.
Taking on calves aged under two, the youngsters thrust swords into the bull’s body between shoulder blade and heart.
An older matador is forced to kill a number of bulls that are left paralysed but still alive.
Animal rights party PACMA released the video taken at Pedrezuela Bull Ring.
PACMA President Silvia Barquero admitted she had been moved to tears by the footage.
