SOCIAL Media has gone wild after the well-known bullfighter, Morante de la Puebla, dried a bull’s tears just before killing it last Friday May 10.

The events took place at the Maestranza bullring in Seville during the ‘Feria de Abril’, or April Fair, when the man pulled out a handkerchief, approached the animal, and wiped its tears.

The bullfighter’s gesture was applauded at the square; however, many users took to social media to criticise the man’s attitude, having been described as a “psychopath”, a “sick sadist” or “disgusting”.

The president of PACMA, Animalist Party Against Mistreatment of Animals, highlighted that “only a twisted and perverse mind would be able to torture an animal until blood drips down its legs and wipe its face with a handkerchief”.


  1. In last weeks edition of EWN in the comments column some one wrote that there are some “sick human beings” taking pleasure in the death of of someone in a bull run in Seville. I was one of those “sick human beings”. My comment was – Bully wins again, Great. I make no apology for what I wrote, as my opinion remains the same, that if someone wants to get involved in violence to animals and it all goes wrong then they must be prepared to pay the price. These animals have rights as well or they should have.

  2. At times like this I dream of Karma. With luck this appalling activity and it’s promoters will have their comeuppance. What a foul, mocking gesture this evil man made towards this poor creature. It sickens me.
