Carrefour Drops Bullfight Ticket Sales

Posted by 5 years ago | Permalink | Comments (8)

Carrefour, the second largest worldwide distributor of bullfight tickets (after Wal-Mart, which own ASDA in the UK), has made the compassionate decision to drop sales of tickets to bullfighting events in France.

In a letter to PETA France, Carrefour stated that as of April 2011, sales of the tickets would cease because of a lack of consumer demand.

Read the letter in French here.

Catalonia last year became the second Spanish region to ban bullfighting outright, after the Canary Islands in 1991. Various other cities and towns across Colombia, Ecuador, France, Portugal, Spain and Venezuela have also recently declared themselves anti-bullfighting.

There can be no excuse for tormenting, torturing and violently killing animals. Thousands of bulls still suffer and die every single year at the hands of the bullfighting industry, and it’s time that this antiquated blood sport was relegated to the history books.

    This is a great victory for the bulls! Many thousand thanks to Carrefour and of course PETA for the good fight! We shall win at last and have a world free of bullfight – this criminal stoneage atrocity!

    Even the Prophet Mohammed denounced all forms of animal fighting. People who like to watch bullfights, dogfights and cockfighting have less earthly value that the poor animals that are forced to fight.

    Look how lack of demand actually oppresses the supply. Well done consumers, congratulations PETA and thank you Carrefour.

    The time cannot come soon enough for this horrendous so called sport to end. The abuse people inflict upon animals disgusts me. What us wrong with some people. Animals are beautiful and deserve to be treated with respect, love and care. The sooner the world wakes up to this, the better. Well done PETA for all your hard work.
