MORE than 100,000 residents have signed a petition supporting the banning of bullfighting in Mallorca.
The initiative to collect signatures was launched one year ago by animal rights associations AnimaNaturalis and Cas Internacional.
The project has gathered political and cultural support, as 17 different municipalities of the islands have since been declared “anti-bullfighting towns.”
“We are greatly satisfied, this campaign is unstoppable,” said the campaign coordinator, Guillermo Amengual. “We think collecting so many signatures in just a year is a very big step in our goal of turning Mallorca into a bullfight-free region.”
