this is not a sport.
I do not see the whole bullfighting as an art, but I see how it can be seen as several individual arts, in the case of the Portuguese style three different arts: the art of maneuvering the horse in front of the bull, the art of the on foot torero and the art of the forcado. In the first two, their actions end with the sticking of a bandarilha on the bull, but the forcados do not harm the bull in any way.

I,m sorry but I do not class a spectacle in which a living creature is subjected to such barbarity as art,art should educate and be a celebration of the higher capabilities of the human spirit.it,s bad enough that we as a species only appear to be at our happiest when injuring or killing our own kind,but to force our bloodlust onto any innocent creature is unforgivable.
