No Seriously — A Bullfighting School in California

i Jul 20th by
It is pompously called the California Academy of Tauromaquia. You can see it online here: Calling bullfighting a “misunderstood science”, the poorly-written description claims the bullfighting school offers adventure and “entry to an exciting lifestyle.” Blood is so conspicuously absent even in the few photographs of bulls already wounded by banderillas that photoshopping must have taken place. While it is unlikely that this school will train any world-class toreador, you never know what creeps who go there in the first place are going to do in their spare time, and bullfighting must not be glorified in ANY way, or gain a foothold in this country. We have enough to fight already.
So if it makes you feel better, you can leave comments on their website at, but more importantly, drop the following decision-making San Diego city officials a line:

Tell these people it is a blemish on the city to have a school that glorifies animal abuse, and that you will most definitely not be vacationing there. Remember, paper letters are great, calls are great, emails are good. All three are wonderful. And bullfighting has to be one of the very bloodiest of a world full of bloody “sports”.
