Bullring in Palma

Palma's bullring.


Inspections of the Coliseo Balear bullring in Palma have not found deficiencies in the arena's structure which could have led to Friday's bullfight being called off. The town hall says that the reports refer to certain weaknesses but that these are not considered to be significant enough to warrant cancellation. The organisers have been informed.

Authorisation for the event is to be signed by the mayor, José Hila. The councillor for culture and welfare, Antoni Noguera, has declined to do so.

Palma and National Police will control security outside and inside the arena, paying particular attention to the presence of minors and the consumption of alcohol.

Hey Spain, in this day and age using this kind of entertainment is barbaric! We are outraged by your horrific animal torture tradition.

"Councilor for Culture and Welfare". That settles it then. Didn't the Romans have this public office at The Collesium? Asking for a friend.

How in this day and age is something as awful as bullfighting still allowed to go on? I'm on the bull's side and with a bit of luck he'll cause some damage to the barbaric bull fighters
