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.

  1. What on earth is wrong with these people? The children involved in this horror will grow up to be very damaged adults, insensitive and cruel. Is that how Spanish parents want their kids to turn out?
    A country carrying this karma burden can only experience a grim future, one to match their Francoist past.

  2. This is a classic example of why the EU is not fit for purpose. Before the Spanish should ever have been considered for membership they should have been made to ban this cowardly and perverted practice and to destroy all bullrings but of course the only reason for the EU was to facilitate bigger profits for big business – banning animal cruelty is irrelevant to this agenda.

  3. This is so sickening and barbaric. I felt every moment for poor bulls. How can this be allowed in a so called civilised society.

    These sick horrible individuals should be tattoo’d with anti Islamic slogans and delivered naked to ISIS.

    • I think you’ve missed the point John. Nothing to do with religion, everything to do with these hideous people suffering a similar, painful and lingering fate. I can think of nothing more suitable for such people.

  4. My congratulations on once again bringing this issue to the surface.

    Please please please publicize this extremely current view on bullfighting expressed so articulately, even with an appropriate level of crudeness, by Ricky Gervais:


  5. This is the worst thing that I have ever seen on the internet. I spend a lot of time in Spain and love the country and generally the people. This is inhuman, barbaric and should not happen. These children and their parents are no more than savages. I fail to see how anybody can justify such a barbaric act. They are not fit to be part of the human race.

  6. HORRIBLE , VILE , SCUM …if these people want to figth bulls ..it should be 1 v 1 from the start no men on horse back tyering the bull out , no help from other matadors …just ONE V ONE …….if the bull figther gets injured ..then tough ..lets just see how he does against the bull then… :( :(..OR JUST BAN IT .
