BULL-RELATED activities will take place this summer, since the amendment to the Animal Protection Law, which was expected to be approved immediately, has now been postponed.
Due to the postponement of the bill till September when parliament resumes, the Fornalutx Bull Run will go ahead, and bullfights will be able to be held on the island during the summer months.
The next bullfight is planned in Alcudia for the end of July during its summer festivities, and another in August, with one expected to be held in Palma and another possibly taking place in Inca. The amendment, which will prohibit all bullfights on the islands, has been under debate as to whether or not the traditional Fornalutx Bull Run should also be included.
Groups have been trying to come to a solution, and maintain the tradition whilst ensuring that “the animal does not suffer.” The amendment had been delayed due to disagreements over the wording of the text.
