The Fornalutx bull-run will not be addressed in the new legislation. | LL. Garcia
The legislative route to introducing a ban on bullfighting in the Balearics has been far from straightforward. The drafting of the text for new legislation became bogged down because it included all forms of events involving animals, which led to differences of opinion regarding, for instance, the horses of the Sant Joan fiestas in Minorca. Then there was the ruling by the Constitutional Court that the ban on bullfighting in Catalonia was unlawful because regional governments do not have the powers to enforce a ban.
