France.- The Animal welfare affiliation, Alliance Anticorrida, founded and headed by Claire Starozinski, has proposed to the organizers of a bullfight to sponsor this event to the amount of 2.000 dollars, for one or more stagings of a bullfight spectacle. This might lead us to believe that the animal lovers have lost the plot, but we should add something more about the bullfight in question – that it would take place in a casino of Las Vegas and no blood will be spilt. Bullfight followers denounce it as a “masked ball without interest” and a “pantomime”. A “strange reaction say the animal lovers from those who claim to love to the bull. Should they not, on the contrary, feel happy about the proposal for a spectacle that respects the animal and, actually might serve to reconcile the pro and the anti bullfighting factions? The public is interested neither in the blood nor in the cruelty that comes with the bullfight”, declare Alliance sources, but rather in the folklore elements, of the “parade”, the fanfare and the passes of the toreador”. It is for this reason that the Alliance proposes a compromise spectacle that can dispense with the unnecessary pain and the death of the animal.
