A Barcelona Judge considers the bull fights for tourists in Alfara de Carles (Tarragona) illegal and prohibited


The Judge of the administrative-litigation court number 17 of Barcelona considers that the bull fights for tourists organized last year by two breeders in Alfara de Carles (Tarragona) are an “illegal and prohibited” activity because it violated the Law of Protection of Animals and the Judge ordered the obligatory cessation of this spectacle.

This is the first judicial pronouncement (as a result of a separate part of the case) on the lawsuit presented originally by Anna Mulà and Magda Oranich, members of the Commission for the Rights of Animals of the Colegio de Abogados de Barcelona [Barcelona Bar Association], against the resolution taken by the Department of Agriculture for not initiating sanctions against the breeders.
