A BULLFIGHTING fiesta thought to have been granted a reprieve faces a total ban in Mallorca.
The controversial correbou, which takes place every September in Fornalutx, was originally thought to have been spared from new Balearic animal rights laws set to come in.
However, under the new changes the organisers must prove that it has been celebrated uninterrupted for at least a century, the minimum timescale to avoid a ban.
Fornalutx mayor Antoni Aguiló believes this will be impossible to prove within the 30-day deadline set.
The new laws, set to be approved this summer, will ban the killing or injuring of bulls, as well as the user of bullfighters on horseback.
