The Puebla animaliers attacked the “fiesta brava”: the judge of the fourth district issued a decision in their favor with which the bullfights that would take place from May 6 to 12 at the Puebla Fair 2023.
The information was confirmed by the municipal president of Puebla, Eduardo Rivera Pérez, who announced that what had been dictated by the judge would be followed and that the tasks foreseen in the legendary bullring El Relicario would not be carried out.
It should be noted that a few hours before what was expressed by the responsible, the collective Puebla sin Tauromaquía – composed of Puebla Vivía and Sin corridas, Animal Heroes, Peta and the Puebla Animal Movement (composed of 117 other organizations) – published a statement to celebrate the determined by the judge.
And it is that since 2022, the group has taken various legal steps to put an end to bullfighting. Since that year, they have obtained 5 suspensions of this type in 4 municipalities of Puebla (Puebla, Zacatlán, San Martín Texmelucan and Teziutlán).
It should be noted that there is currently a debate about this type of action, since companies have accused that when bullfights are canceled there is a loss of jobs and income, in this regard the bullfighting columnist, Carlos Espinal, announced that the company La Feria Toro bucará opposes the measure taken in Puebla through a complaint, which will be resolved within the next 48 hours.
If the decision is overturned, matadors Antonio Ferrera, Uriel Moreno “El Zapata”, Ernesto Javier “Calita”, Andy Cartagena, Jorge Hernández and Fauro Aloi could make their presentations.
For their part, animal rights organizations assured that the decision “demonstrates (through justice) that bullfighting violates the human right to a healthy environment and a culture of peace and respect”.
In this sense, they announced that their next objective would be for the State Congress to legislate on the matter, since they assured that at least “80% of the population of the State agree that bullfights are of the animal abuse and should be prohibited”.
