Was Bullfighting banned in Spain? If so, there will be a lot of disappointed tourists and citizens. However, it appears as if the rumors are true. The Spanish Parliament of Catalonia has made it official, no more bull fighting. It was a close vote it came down to the wire 68 voted against bullfighting while 55 votes were cast to keep the tradition alive.
Regions other than Catalonia will still be able to have bullfighting, unless they follow suit and institute a ban as well.
Bullfighting has long been a sport in Spain but with the ban in place it doesnâ€™t look like there will be any fighting going on anytime soon in Catalonia.Â Spain without bullfighting is like…America without baseball. What a sad day.
The Bullfighting ban will go into effect in January 2011. After that Spainâ€™s long tradition of fighting of the bulls with just be a memory…in Catalonia.
