Not really, I am still waiting for the source of the "The bull was put down after hours of fighting" part, as far as I could see that was not part of the original article and its not true, they do not even kill the bulls in that event.

So they torture the bull and prolong it's death and keep it scared and terrified .
That's why one person died but all bulls survived?

It is cruel and tortuos to the animal. They call it a fight but it's like handcuffing someones' hands behind them and them ringing the bell for "Round 1" in a boxing match.

That's a funny thing, the people involved in the bullfight scene have a great respect for the bull,
Surrounding the bull and tormenting it is not bullfight, and that's a problem with this thread.

Surrounding the bull and tormenting him just for a bit of fun. Do you think the bull can see respect in his eyes?
It's 13 minutes in Portugal, and I think it's the same in Spain.
If what you say is true that most bulls only suffer for 30 minutes and then some can move on and live a peaceful life. That's like saying it's OK to rape and beat a woman, because don't worry she wont be raped ever again. It's like saying I raped her in a respectful way.
That video doesn't show bullfighting, it shows a specific event (the corraleja, the name comes from corral) that only exists in Colombia (as far as I could find).
I'm sure bull fighting is different in different parts of the world, some probably do show respect like you say, but in that video all I saw was a very scared, confused and angry bull surrounded by thrill seekers abusing an animal for fun.
The respect is there, the bull is not treated as an object but as a worthy opponent

Thats one peverse form of respect in my eyes bud.
They probably know why they do it, after all they are doing it.
I dont even think these peeps have any idea of why they stab the bull or of what religion it comes from. It is outdated and should be abolished..

Did you know they put broken glass in the bulls anus before a "fight" just to make it more angry
