BENEJUZAR has hosted its first bullfight in the last 30 years.
The event went ahead despite protests from animal groups who objected as soon as the bullfight was announced.
Although animal rights protesters did not attend on the day, protests are still expected.
The bullfight involved 12 matadors and five bulls and the competition was divided into three rounds for each of the five bulls with the men showing their skills in being able to avoid the bull, although two did receive slight injuries after being caught.
Organisers billed it as a show for the whole family and invited children into the ring afterwards where they had to dodge a man dressed as a bull.
