Palma.—Mallorca Sense Sang (Majorca without blood), with the support of local and international  animal rights groups, yesterday handed over a petition, signed by 60,000 Palma residents, calling for an end to bullfighting in the municipality.
Support for the movement has been steadily growing over recent years, especially amongst the younger generations who have no interest in the art of bullfighting and prefer more relevant past times.
What is more, Catalonia set a precedent when it banned bullfighting two  years ago.
Bullfighting was banned in  Catalonia by a vote of the Catalan Parliament in July 2010. The ban came into effect on 1 January 2012.
The last bullfight in the region took place in Barcelona in September 2011.
